Observation Hives

girls and boys building observation hive   girls building observation hive  
Measuring the parts as they assembled the hives was an important lesson.
Each family now has an observation hive.The children learn a lot monitoring their hives.
  Mike and Gerry were the fathers that supervised this building project. They did the parts children could not do such as running the power saws. The children did all the sanding and much of the assembling.
