Bee the Change!


When learning about living things and nature’s systems, you explore life cycles of different species and the concept of Interdependence, which is how living things rely on each other through systems such as food chains and food webs. Important to all living things is the idea of sustainability, which is our way of making sure nature stays in balance, both now and into the future.
