Building and Setting Up Bee Larvae Shelters
During the DO stage, students analyzed their action plan at each step. They researched the process, the impact and, of course, the materials necessary to build their larvae shelters. Then they strategically planned to seek donations and collaborate with other non-profits to effectively gather the tools and materials necessary. For instance, to gather cans for the shelters, students hosted a can food drive for a local organization and the empty cans were re-donated to them to build the shelters. After collecting additional donations for their supplies, students created their mason bee larvae shelters using cinder blocks, cement, wood, food cans, paint, screws and L brackets. The shelters were then placed outside of the school building.
