What our customers say
Abbie was calm, professional and her enthusiasm was contagious!
Teacher Balgowlah Nth PS August 2017
This incursion was probably the best incursion we have ever had in the school. The content fit in perfectly with what we are teaching the students about bees and the skills we are looking at in Geography. I would highly recommend it!
I liked it because it was very interactive and taught me a lot about the different types of bees. –
The bee incursion was amazing. I would recommend it to every school in Australia.
The bee hotels were so much fun to make and we had a great time.
It provided a great experience for the students to develop an awareness of bees and develop team work skills.
The Super Pollinators Incursion was interesting and well presented. Students were engaged and asked interesting questions which arose from the presentation.
It was a wonderful experience for our students. They have a greater awareness of native bees.
It was great – the kids loved it!
Fabulous! Expressive, dramatic, super clear info. So professional! Fantastic resources!
The kids loved the bee hotel lesson. It was very hands-on, super engaging yet challenging.
A fantastic and engaging workshop!
The students and teachers all gained some important and useful information on bees!
Fits in perfectly with unit (of study for year 1).
Very interesting; lots of unknown facts.
Our year 3’s were captivated by Abbie’s fascinating facts about bees. They loved checking out all of the different specimens Abbie brought in too. The highlight of the day by far was definitely the hands-on opportunity for the students to build their very own bee hotels. It allowed for the important skill of team work to flourish and the results were amazing. Overall it was a fun filled day with lots of learning opportunities. Abbie was so knowledgeable and her enthusiasm was infectious. Thank you for a wonderful day Abbie!
Abbie and her fun presentation on native bees inspired our children and added so much to their knowledge of pollination. We have a large vegetable garden and orchard here in which the children spend allocated lesson time each week. We have spent the winter looking at pollination, seeds and flower parts whilst doing the Primary Connections unit Plants in Action. This workshop ties in nicely with the unit. Thank you Abbie!
Thank you to you and your team at Kids Connecting Nature for running a fantastic and informative workshop for our primary students! It was amazing to discover so many wonderful facts about bees, especially Australian bees. The students thoroughly enjoyed all the activities, especially creating and painting their bee hotels…and some have already been put to good use! We will treasure this enriching experience for a long time.
You should have a bee incursion in the classroom, because you can learn a truckload of things: like how to make a fantastic bee house. The bee house will let bees have somewhere to rest and lay their eggs, especially bees who cannot fly long distances. I like how the bee house looked after we painted it. We learned a lot and so did our teachers. The day was awesome.
My favourite bee is the teddy bear bee. I liked participating with my partner.
Abbie the bee lady came to our school she taught us how to use a hammer and nails to build a bee house. We all cooperated together as a team to make a bee house.
A stimulating and informative workshop using all the elements of STEM lessons.
Today’s workshop was amazing- an exciting, hands on learning experience that linked well with Stage 2 Living World outcomes. The students were engrossed in the construction of their bee hotels and will be talking about it for years to come! Abbie was an engaging presenter, full of enthusiasm and knowledge on the topic. Her invertebrate displays, construction materials and overall presentation were of a very high quality. A highly recommended activity for primary school students.
From the moment Abbie arrived at our school we knew this was going to be a great incursion. She came very prepared with outstanding resources. Her Powerpoint presentation and supplementary information were perfectly pitched at our year 1 students. They loved building the bee hotels and viewing her amazing display.
An interesting and informative presentation that stimulated the children’s curiosity. The construction aspect was a great move from information to real action.
Abbie was great with the kids, engaging and knowledgeable.
Abbie was a dynamic presenter and great to deal with prior to our incursion. I highly recommend the Super Pollinators for connecting kids with the local fauna.
