Honey Bees

Alex's nana brought one of her beehives to school.
She had put a perspex lid on the hive, so we could safely see inside the hive.

The honey is stored in cells made of beeswax. 
Joined together, they are called honeycomb.

Safety gear protects people from getting stung when working with bees.
