Have you ever raised honey bees? 
Today we learned, from one of our own classmates, about how her family raises honey bees!
 She brought in an actual honey comb that the kids got to touch and smell. She explained to us how the honey gets squeezed from the honey comb when it's ready!

When the honey comb is burned down, you can make wax! She brought in a sample of honey wax to pass around! Since we have been learning about Matter, the students got to see the real life example of how first the honeycomb is a solid, then as it burns or melts it becomes a liquid, and then it returns to a solid state in a different form as it hardens into wax! Such sensational second grade scientists!!
