“Bees and Ants”

Transition into today’s activities by guiding the discussion with questions such as, “Today we are going to talk about ants and bees. Who can tell me what these two insects have in common? Do you remember when we talked about mouthparts on Monday? Ants have chewing mouthparts, like the pliers that we picked things up with. They can use those pincher-like chewing mouthparts to pinch you, so you have to be careful when you are observing them. Bees don’t use their mouths, but they sure can hurt us. How do they do it? They use a stinger built into their abdomens. Ants and bees are very interesting to observe, but we need to be careful when we are around them, don’t we?”
