Honeybees and Honey
Honeybees make honey so they have food to eat.
By William, Devin and Franklin
Honeybees cannot get nectar in the winter so they must make plenty of honey to survive.
A honeybee can visit up to 10,000 flowers a day to get nectar and pollen. That makes only one teaspoon of honey.
It takes nectar and pollen from one million flowers to make one pound of honey.
Where do honeybees live?
By Patrick, Simon, Monica and Julia
They live in all parts of the world except the Arctic and Antarctic.
The honeybees live in a colony in a bee hive.
60,000 honeybees live in a hive.

Honey Bee Communication
By:Justen, Shoyhn, Christina, and Shelby
Honeybees communicate one way by doing a dance called the round dance which tells the estimate of the distance between the hive and the flowers.
Honeybees also have another dance called the wagging dance that they use to say the exact distance between the hive and the flowers.
Honeybees also smell to communicate. The smell is called pheromone. The worker bees smell this and it tells them if they can get back to work or have to help the queen.
HOW HONEYBEES HELP FLOWERS AND CROPS
A bee is searching for a blossom.
Pollen will stick to a honeybee’s body.
