The Canadian Honey Council has lesson plans which teachers may find helpful to review and adapt as required to the learning level of their students. It is always a good idea to expose the children to some form of learning about bees before they come to the honey farm, in order to make their experience more meaningful.
The tours are interactive and designed to meet the learning needs of different age groups and class sizes. They are also meant to be fun and games-with-aims are an integral part of our tours. This means that an adequate number of leaders/volunteers are needed to participate and to be available at all times to help monitor and guide behaviour throughout the tour. Please note that respectful behaviour and listening skills are an important part of this farm tour.
Name tags are extremely helpful and improve the personalization of the experience.
We love for parents and other valued friends and family members to participate and be involved in all the fun. Please keep in mind though that we’d prefer to have your undivided attention in order to give the best possible experience to the children. If you must answer the phone or chat, please move to an area away from the tour as to not distract from the fun.
Teachers should inform Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm Facilitators of anyone who has known honeybee sting allergies and ensure that parents are aware that participation is at their own risk. Those with known allergies will not be included in the tour to the live hive.
We recommend that anyone attending not wear any perfume or hair spray or highly scented deodorant or creams. We have never had a problem with anyone being stung on a formal tour, but scents can confuse the bees and encourage them to buzz around the highly scented individual a bit more than they would if there was no scent. Bees also don’t like things that are really shiny or the smell of bananas.
