'Next Time You See a Bee, Don't Swat It!'

Get ready to get your hands dirty and your minds working! This workshop will engage the senses as the participants explore what bees and ladybugs have in common and their relationship to a vibrant garden. Working with NSTA award winning author, Emily Morgan , and her series of Next Time You See books, presenters will share their three-dimensional resources around the big idea of living things found in the life science standards. Walk away with a packet of ready-made ideas and maybe even a copy of Emily Morgan's newest book!
