    Mind Your Own Beeswax Lesson by Agriculture in the Classroom

    Mind Your Own Beeswax Lesson by Agriculture in the Classroom

    Overview

    Looking for a project for middle school-age students? This project-based learning experience will allow students to solve the problem of excess beeswax, a byproduct of honey bees, by developing a useful beeswax product and marketing their product to be sold in a local boutique or farmers market. This is a great way to drum up business and interest with students and the community in preparation for starting your own Bee Club! This lesson has step-by-step instructions and how-to documents to help the educator facilitate the process.
