Bee Bodies: Structure and (Fun)ction

by The Bug Chicks

Morphology is the study of the structure and function of an animal’s body. And sometimes, learning all the bits and pieces can get really intense! This video goes in-depth on bee morphology. We had a ton of fun creating larger-than-life body parts out of common household goods like hair combs, pipe cleaners, and toilet brushes!
