Join the Bee Hunt!

sunflowerprojectI signed up for this the other day and I think it will be a fun activity for us during the summer.

Simply visit the site for The Great Sunflower Project, sign up with them, and they will send you sunflower seeds.  Plant the sunflowers and when they bloom, spend some time tracking how long it takes for 5 bees to visit.  Report this information to the website for compilation with other reporters results.

They are tracking the bees because there is apparently a shortage of bees, which makes pollination more difficult.  You can read at the site to learn more.
