Key Bee Anatomy

Bees may be tiny, but they are amazing creatures with bodies specially designed for their important jobs! Let’s take a closer look at the main parts of a bee and what they do:

  • Head: This is the bee’s control center! It has eyes for seeing flowers, antennae for smelling and feeling, and a special tongue (called a proboscis) for sipping nectar.
  • Thorax: Think of this like the bee’s backpack. It holds the powerful muscles that make the wings move and the strong legs for walking and carrying pollen.
  • Abdomen: This is the biggest part of the bee’s body. Inside, it holds the bee’s tummy and a special sac to store honey.

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.
