Life Cycle of a Honey Bee for Kids
This simple pack is perfect for preschoolers. It contains a life cycle poster, life cycle description cards, picture cards, and a cut and paste life cycle page for your little ones to complete.
When you pair this life cycle printable with some simple non-fiction books about bees, you’ve got everything you need to spend some time learning about the life cycle of a honey bee.
I suggest printing and laminating the poster, the description cards, and the picture cards. This will make them more durable and able to withstand use by preschoolers.
Print the cut and paste page on regular printer paper so kids can color and cut this activity page at the end of the lesson.
To start the lesson, I suggest reading one or more nonfiction books about bees. I recommend National Geographic Readers: Bees and Time for Kids: A Bee’s Life. Both of these books have simple text and real photographs of bees.
For more suggestions, check out my list of nonfiction books about bees.
After reading a couple of books about bees, show your kids the life cycle poster. Talk about each of the four stages shown.
You can use the information cards to go into as much or as little detail as you’d like. I recommend teaching kids the names of each of the stages. They’re little sponges right now and can pick up the words pupa and larva pretty quickly.
When you present the picture cards, see if your kids can recall the names of each of the stages. You can also use a plastic replica of the life cycle stages. I purchased mine at Michaels with a coupon, but you can find several different styles on Amazon.
Have your kids match each figure to the correct card. See if they can recall what happens in each stage.
