Insects on Flowers Sensory Bin

I already made a generic insects sensory bin and a sensory bin with insects in soil. Today we played with insects on flowers. I was specifically interested in everything in regards to nectar and honey making. I made a honeycomb out of construction paper. Since our honeycomb is made of paper, I couldn't put honey right in it, so I poured a little bit on a plate and put it next to the bin.

Besides learning about the process of collecting nectar and storing it in a honeycomb, you can talk about the structure of a flower (stem, petals) as well as insects’ structure (wings, legs).
