Along with the worksheet design, I was asked to make a more in depth drawing of honey bee metamorphosis!
I’m especially proud of the detail in the adult bee 🙂
However (uh oh)! My initial design was factually wrong! Honey bees don’t make cocoons in their growth cells. Instead, after being fed from the nurse bees from egg to larval stage, the cell is covered with a thick layer of wax that incubates them for their pupal stage of growth. When they are fully grown, the bees munch out the wax cover and emerge as adults, ready to work!
