We all know how caterpillars become butterflies, but have you ever wondered about the life cycle of a bumblebee? Read along with the Tumblebook, “The Bumblebee Queen.” Over the years, different cultures have marveled at transformations in the world and created Legends to explain them. Read this Ojibwa Legend called “The Star Maiden.”
Now that you know about the life cycle of the bumblebee, can you make up a legend to explain it in a different way? Imagine if the Queen Bee were a magical creature – what kind of creature would she be? What would she want? What would she do to get what she wants? Be creative!
Sometimes the challenges we face take more than one step to solve. This is so true in life, but it’s also true in word problems! Watch this video on solving two-step word problems. Then, see if you can use operations (multiplication, division, addition, and/or subtraction) to solve these math puzzles!
