Scroll down to page 2. Read about the BEE COLLECTOR.

You can buy some of these lessons. I own many of them and print the Teacher's Guides. They no longer make the pages so they are online but if they still have some, you can buy them.

I started a session of Michigan History with The Bee Tree and will do a month or so of these "The Mitten" lessons.

I really enjoyed reading that. I grew up in Syracuse NY and enjoyed walking along the old erie canal at Onondaga Lake Park. I used to imagine what is was like back then. It really brought back some sweet memories.

Thanks for the link!!
Really cool info.
Maybe I'm a little biased having been born and raised in the "Mitten".:lol:
