Pollinator Presentations

  JK-Grade 6

Each pollinator presentation is designed to be grade-appropriate. For a live-
online or live-in-person presentation, several classes are welcome to attend at
the same time. It is easiest if the Bee Ambassador stays in one location such as
the library or gym rather than move from classroom to classroom. We use a
laptop with Powerpoint slides, and sound is required.
 
If grade appropriate, we use songs, jokes, props, lots of fun movements, a waggle
dance, stories, videos, and Powerpoint slides with supporting images to enhance
the presentation. There is always time for Questions and Answers to engage with
the students.

We offer our live-online presentations free of charge for all public schools across Canada. By purchasing a presentation, private schools can help us achieve our goal or reaching 10,000 students this year.
