The Bee Tree

This is a great story about finding adventure, excitement, and wisdom through reading.  I read this story to my students and we discussed the main idea of the story before beginning our art lesson.  Students first drew a landscape depicting their very own Bee Tree using crayons.  Next, in an empty space on their paper, they used their pointer finger to stamp yellow bee bodies and their pinky finger to stamp the heads.  When the yellow paint was dry, they drew lines in the bodies, wings, and stingers.  I like the way that their swarms of bees show movement in their artwork.
