Minecraft Education Edition: Anatomy (Build With Bees!)

What makes a bee a bee?

Students compare characteristics common to all insects with a honeybee’s anatomy before using this information to design and build their own bees.

This lesson will enable students to:

  • Identify the characteristics that are shared by all insects
  • Identify body parts that are unique to bees, and describe those parts’ specialized functions
  • Practice and reflect on an iterative design process
