Everyone Is “ABUZZ” in the Lower School

The New Year has begun and Krieger Schechter’s Lower School is celebrating with an exciting cross-curricular program about honeybees.  Our students have been learning about the role that honey plays in the fall Jewish holidays, the various jobs bees do to support a hive, and the geometric shape and dimension of honeycomb cells. 

As a special highlight, we were treated to a visit by a beekeeper.  As part of his presentation, the beekeeper brought in a live, escape-proof “observation hive,” completely encased in glass.  This provided our students with the unique opportunity to view bees in a more natural setting.
