Phenomena-driven science! Phenomena are observable, naturally occurring events that are everywhere and spark student questions and investigations. Ask students to observe the DCI-linked phenomena in the video and complete the attached student sheet prior to remote learning discussions.

Observations: Carefully watch the dancing bee video. Gather all the evidence you can from the video, and write down everything you observe.

Generate Questions: Why is only one bee dancing? What is the one dancing bee doing? Why do bees dance? Are the bees communicating?

Research (include sources):

Final Explanation: Use a written explanation, graphic, or flow chart to present your final explanation for dancing bees.
