Honeybee Slide Presentations for Students in Transition Year

Please click the button below to access a set of slide presentations intended for use as a tool to support our Educators when talking about honeybees and beekeeping to Transition Year Students in a classroom-type setting.

The presentations are organized into 6 different Modules; each lasting approx. 40 – 50 minutes.

Module 1 – The Honey bee Colony, Queen and Drone

Module 2 – The Worker Bee

Module 3 – Hive Equipment

Module 4 – Pests and Diseases

Module 5 – Spring and Summer Beekeeping

Module 6 – Autumn and Winter Beekeeping

Each presentation consists of a slideshow with photo and video content in addition to slide-specific notes for the presenter. These notes are intended as a guide.

The presentations are intended to provide the basis of the teaching session.

In addition, we envisage that presenters will have with them examples of beekeeping equipment and bee produce, when presenting the relevant modules.

  • Bee suit
  • Hive tool
  • Smoker (empty)
  • Brush
  • Fully functioning hive if possible (empty)
  • A frame of capped honey
  • Jar of honey
  • Observation hive if possible
  • Any other equipment deemed of interest by the presenter.

If this is not possible, Module 3 contains videos and photos of the above.

Each module will finish with a quiz on that day’s presentation.

There is also a 5-minute video on opening and inspecting a hive which we would strongly advise the presenters to use in conjunction with the slide presentations.

At the end of the 6-week course, participating students will receive a FIBKA certificate of attendance.
