Step 2: Glue the shapes to paper to form a hexagon cell. Step 3: Design each cell with a "hive" worker in mind. Join cells into a honeycomb pattern by gluing the sides of the hexagons together. In a honey bee community, one can find a level of cooperation and collaborative teamwork that exists nowhere else on earth. This project asks students to consider the people who provide them with the necessities of life, then design cells that represent each of those people and their contributions. The cells can be interconnected to create a "honeycomb of appreciation." Build a "honeycomb" community honoring the ones who keep it humming! Blick Pastels Blick Construction Paper
