Beehives are made of walls, each of the same size, enclosing small hexagonal cells where honey and pollen is stored and bees are raised.
To help your little ones understand the hexagon shape, we created a variety of “hexagon” structures and “hexagon” art.
We first used yellow tape that we filled in with hexagons, triangles and squares.
We then used paper hexagons to create our own beehives. An awareness of shapes and spatial sense will help your child get ready to learn about geometry.
