Podcast: Vanishing Honeybees
Honeybees are dropping like flies! Some environmentalists are more concerned about the decline in pollinators than they are about global warming. Today’s podcast features a reading from our ready-made Discussion Starters lesson plan about vanishing honeybees. In the lesson plan, students read about and discuss the environmental concerns related to Colony Collapse Disorder. This lesson plan includes comprehension, vocabulary, and critical thinking exercises. You can assign this podcast for homework before you do the lesson, or download the MP3 file and listen to it together in class. If you’re an English learner, use this podcast for extra listening practice.
Check out our full list of Environmental lesson plans, and consider doing a theme-based unit on this subject.
