Two years ago, 👧🏻Julia made up this 🎤song to help her little 👦🏼brother (then 2 yo) remember the names fo the 🌊oceans.
.
.
. 🎤 "Oceans, oceans, do you know your oceans? Oceans, oceans all around the world: Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean too. Don't forget the Southern Ocean and don't forget cold Antarctic too."
.
.  Please, see details on my 📃blog "Learning 🌊 Oceans with a 🎶 Song at 33 months" (featured post)  http://www.montessorifromtheheart.com/my-blog/2016/07/learning-oceans-with-a-song-montessori-geography.html .

We are finishing our 🐝Bee Unit with learning about the 🌺pollination hands-on. So I set up this green rice sensory bin with two flowers filled with pom poms and offered Adrian to transfer the yellow pom-poms "pollen" from the 💙blue flower to the 💗pink using tongs. .

The 💫Lifecycle of the 🐝Honey Bee .
.
Did you know that what the larva fed determines its fate⁉️
For example, a future worker bee is fed "bee bread" which is a mixture of pollen and nectar, however, a future 👑🐝Queen is fed a very special "royal jelly" ~a substance secreted from glands in the heads of worker bees, which possesses the highest nutrient count. .
.
Also, did you know that Workers: (10,000 - 60,000 in a colony) are all female and their roles are to forage for food (pollen and nectar from flowers), build and protect the hive, care for larvae, clean and circulate air by beating their wings😱And each 🐝goes through each "job" in a lifespan of weeks to months. (That's a lot of responsibility in such a short time!🏆) Workers are the only 🐝bees we ever 👀see flying around outside the hive. And, Only females bees (the workers and a 👑Queen) have a stinger. 
So, what do males do⁉️They mate with the 👑😉

Exploring the ✨mystery of hexagon shape. Did you know that it is the most space efficient shape? For example, on the right, I drew ⚪️circles next to each other and offered Adrian to color in with a 🔺red Sharpie the space that would have been wasted should the bees decided to build their hive using ⚪️circle cells😬And, to make the activity 🏷hands-on, 👦🏼Adrian made the hexagon shape on geoboards. (Remember last post 🔨🚂😉)
I also offered Adrian to make a hexagon shape from pom poms on the LEGO boards using tongs, which is a wonderful fine motor activity!

Did you know that 🍯honey 🐝bees have existed for at least a 💯 million years? 😱Some scientists have suggested that bees existed even before the dinosaurs! How do scientists know that? They find amber fossilized 🐝bees. Inspired by this information, Adrian decided to have a 🔍closer look at a wasp preserved in a solid acrylic block from our Anthropode set (🔗on my blog). We are also learning the ✨mystery of the hexagon shape! .

Continuing our 🐝Bee study with 💚POM POMS counting activity.
.
.

In a Montessori Math curriculum, the numbers' placement is ingeniously color coded so that your units are always 💚green and your tens are always 💙blue (hundreds are ❤️red and so on). So, using these printable (📥get a 🔗link on my 📃blog ~ inspired by 😘  @reaching_happy ) I added a 💙blue ten's number to make this number recognition more interesting for 👦🏼Adrian who is no longer interested in numbers 1-10🙈. I also offered him to fill the honeycomb with 💚pom poms using tongs (to practice those🙌🏻 fine motor skills) and then represent a number with Montessori colored beads. .

What 💙boy does not like 🔨hammering or 📌poking, and why not both? 👦🏼Adrian is loving the Tap & Tack Play Set that comes with a corkboard (we intend to use as a DIY  geoboard - Stay tuned for my 📍next post!), a child-sized wooden 🔨hammer, a sheet of templates and 50 wooden tiles👍🏻And all this for💸 $14! 😱Please note 📝 that this set comes with tiny nails, which might be too small for a younger child (for sure for anyone younger than 4), so I also bought larger tacks (sold separately) to use in lieu of the tiny nails. Here, Adrian also matched his favorite BRIO 🚂locomotive to the one he 🔨tapped onto the corkboard. .

We are continuing our 🐝 Bee Study, and after 📖reading some 🐝📚books, and studying Honey Bee Anatomy, we could not resist but to make a 🍒bee. We hot glued pom poms to make a smaller black head and a thorax, as well as yellow striped abdomen (yellow pom pom wrapped with a black pipe cleaner). Our bee also has a stinger (it is a female) and a set of fore-wings and hind-wings. Bees have a compound eyes ~ five eyes to be exact, but none can see the color🔴 red😱 (so wear red next time you go on a picnic!). Their antennae are very sensitive. Did you know that when the bees meet, they use their antennae to see if they know each other? "Hellow👋🏻 Friend! Wait, do I know you?" .
