The honey materials provide information on different bees that make up the hive, how pollination works and also includes a fun honey tasting activity…pick up a variety of honey varietals from your local grocer – look for specific sources like clover, wildflower, sunflower, and orange blossom – sway away from bottles that don’t tell you specifically what the plant source was - then have your students taste test the honey varietals. Each varietal will have different flavor profile. Squeeze a taste sample on a clean spoon for each student and allow them to taste. It is enjoyable watching the students discuss the flavors they pick up with each sample…apple pie, vanilla, cinnamon, raisin, etc.
