This parts of a bee preschool worksheet is perfect for your life cycle, insect, and general bee-themed preschool activities this spring and summer.

Parts of a Bee Preschool Worksheet
Add this free summer printable to your seasonal lesson plans. Because it’s print-and-go, it’s perfect for busy homeschool moms and teachers like you!
Activities that instruct children to label different objects are great for building vocabulary.
You can use labeling worksheets to introduce or reinforce vocabulary words relevant to the theme you’re teaching.
You can also use these types of activities to help little ones become familiar with the written words.
When you give kids cut and paste worksheets, you give them an opportunity to practice their scissor skills.
Putting labels in the correct boxes is a good way to develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
Who knew one little worksheet could provide so many benefits!
It’s really easy to make this a reusable activity. First, have your child color the bee on the worksheet. Then, laminate the page. Cut the bottom strip off (the part with the label boxes).
Put a velcro dot on each blank box as well as on the back of each label. Preschoolers can stick the labels on the diagram, and take them off again.

Bee & Me – A little girl befriends a bee that takes her on a journey of discovery, revealing an action that every child can take to aid in conservation. The Honeybee Man – Every morning, Fred climbs three flights of stairs—up to his rooftop in Brooklyn, New York—and greets the members of his enormous family: “Good morning, my bees, my darlings!” His honeybee workers are busy—they tend the hive, feed babies, and make wax rooms. They also forage in flowers abloom across Brooklyn… so that, one day, Fred can make his famous honey, something the entire neighborhood looks forward to tasting. The Life and Times of the Honeybee – Why do beekeepers use smoke machines when collecting honey? Can a bee really sting only once? Why do bees “dance”? In concise, detailed text and abundant illustrations that range from the humorous to the scientific, Charles Micucci offers a wide-ranging and spirited introduction to the life cycle, social organization, and history of one of the world’s most useful insects.
