Summary of clip: Barry the beerealizes that he has made a mistake in his attempts to stop humans from taking the bees' honey. He recently wona law suit that no longer allowed humans to steal honey from honeybees. Now all the bees are no longer working which results in all the flowers dying from lack of pollination.

Connection of flickclip to the concept: Pollination is the process of transferring pollen from one plant to another for reproduction to occur. This is done in different ways but the honeybee plays a big part in the pollination of plants.
Suggestions to teachers:

1. Use this clip to introduce the anatomy of a plant, pollination and reproduction.

2. Choose different plants that are pollinated in different ways. Have each group pick a plant and research the way it is pollinated. Share with the rest of the class.

3. Research the honey bee-explore the benefits of honeybees on farms/crops, special flight skills, stingers, honey makers.
