To Bee or Not to Bee

Abigail Dickinson Period 1

Questions and Answers

  1. Have I ever seen something like this before?

The decline of bees reminds me of when I learned about turtles becoming endangered because poachers were taking their eggs from their nests and selling them.


2. What other strategies are possible?

I think that if more people new about this threat they would start to care more about how they treat bees in the wild and in their backyards.


3. Who is affected?

I believe that everybody is affected by this issue. If bees can't get to a lot of plants of flowers then we can't have as many clothes, food, and honey.


4. Who can help teach people and communicate the importance of them?

I think that if some beekeepers helped to teach children and adults then the word would spread to other people.


5. How will this affect my life?

This will affect my life because I really like honey on bread and also honey can help you if you have allergies to pollen or flowers. If there are no bees then there would be no cotton for clothes.
