Write a Haiku for Dippy! Create a poem around climate change, alternative energy and environmental issues - all of which affect the plight of the Bee.
The essence of a Haiku is about the changing seasons and nature and is usually only 3 lines, so it's do-able for everyone! Take your Haiku home for your mantelpiece, bedroom or fridge or leave it to form part of the exhibition to hang in the poetry corner.
Then play on a traditional board game on the theme of pollination. Imagine you have to 'save life on earth', leaving the safety of the hive to gather pollen and then returning but on the way you have to overcome social and environmental obstacles that may prevent you from saving the world!
