Student Resources

Primary and secondary students can access bee and pollination-related resources to enhance their learning.

The informative, engaging content is simple and easy to use, providing science-based information to students with infographics and photography, perfect for school projects or presentations.

Drone Bees

Drones are the male bees within the colony. They make up just a small portion of the population of a hive. Drones are larger than worker bees but smaller than the queen.

Life in the Hive

Life in the hive is busy, many hands make light work! In every European honey bee colony there are three types of bees - a queen, workers, and drones.

Native Bees

Australian has an estimated 2500 native bee species. Over 1600 have been identified and named, with scientists believing an extra 1000 exist.

Queen Bees

The queen bee is the heart of the hive, with each colony having just one. She is easily identified by having a larger abdomen than the other bees.

Structure of a Hive

A standard hive consists of a bottom board, a brood chamber, a honey super, a lid that straps or clips to hold it all together and a colony of honey bees.

Worker Bees

Worker bees’ hairy bodies collect pollen which the bees can then move to their 'pollen baskets' on their hind legs to take back to the hive.
