By: Lily Voynov
The Origin of Honey
The origin starts from a seed. Then, the seed grows into a flower. Then, you get nectar from the flower. But you can't forget to water the flower.
The Process of Making Honey
This is how you make honey and the process of it. First, bees make a honeycomb out of wax. Then, the worker bee(s) gathers nectar and pollinate with his/her tongue. Next, they bring it back and the bees share it by chewing and dropping the nectar into the honey comb cells. Then, they fan there wings over the cells to dry the nectar out, then to turn it/change it into honey.
