Making Honey

Remember the T.I.I.C structure.
Making Honey
Who, what where
Why, how, when  
The end
Do you know about bee, And why they live in a hive? Well below I will explain to you why we need suit before we go near a hive, and how they also get or make their honey.When you are near a hive you need to wear a suit, so that you won't get stung by a busy bee. If you have a hive at the back you your house, Do not let little kids hang around without an adult. Little kids can get stung by a bee and also it is really painful.

Info - Paragraph one
Bees can fly up to 8 kilometres from their hive, and they can make up to 100 trips in a day.The worker are all female,but there are different types of worker bees, that each have a job to do.They go and collect nectar and pollen, and bring them back to the hive.The Queen’s job is to lay eggs, to keep the hive going.

Info - Paragraph two
When you have the honey from the hive, you put it into the extractor, if you have one? Once the honey has been span, it collects on the side of the drum. When the honey is really from the extractor, it get put into jars.

Once it is put into jars, you can have a picnic with your family and friends at the park with the honey you have made. You can eat it with bread, pancakes and waffle.
