Bee populations are on the decline but should we be concerned? Do we need to save the bees? In solving "The Mystery of the Missing Bees," students explore the important role bees play as pollinators within ecosystems. Throughout this unit, students develop science ideas as they explain true phenomena and design solutions to real problems. The use of multiple phenomena supports students to develop and use three-dimensional elements. They investigate the impact of human activities on wild bee species and discover why a reduction in biodiversity threatens global food security. Confronted with this problem, students must make a choice: save the bees or replace them!
