Investigating native bees: Yr 5/6 Australian curriculum aligned units focussing on Australian native bees

Students develop an understanding of the importance of native bees and propose actions to protect them. They begin by working collaboratively to undertake secondary research in order to create a class library about native bees. They then undertake primary research by completing a native bee survey at their school. Based on the results of their primary and secondary research, students propose actions to protect native bees at their school and produce a communication piece to share their ideas with the school community.
