Everyday more and more bees die off. The United States has lost up to 44 percent of their bee population in 2015-16. Bee populations are so low in the US that it now takes 60% of the country’s surviving colonies j
I have heard that the bees are dying off but I didn’t know to what extent! Do you know how you could help with saving the bees? I know of something where you can make your yard a habitat for bees and be certified. Thanks for doing the project! We need awareness.
I really loved this book when I first read it. While it is very sad, the subject was very interesting and I learned a lot through the eyes of this little boy. I really hope you enjoy the rest of it, but be warned, the ending is very sad.
After doing more research on the Pioneer Databases, I found an article that explains more about the disappearance of the bees. An article on EBSCO said that many hives around the country are experiencing colony
Anna, I really like the topic you have chosen. I think this is a serious issue that a lot of people are unaware of. One question I have is: Where are these deadly neonics coming from, and who/ what is the leading producer of them?
This subject is very important and the world is very ignorant too such issues. Maybe because they don’t consider it very important but it is extremely important. The world has to realise that if bees die off. We wont have access to the abundance of foods that we have.
After doing further research, I have found out a lot more about why the bees are disappearing. According to an article in the Global Issues from the Gale research, disease and climate change all play a part in th
Anna, this is a very interesting topic, and I am also concerned about the declining health of honeybee. The sources you used were very effective in answering your question. Do scientists know why worker bees aren’t returning to their hives?
I actually really like this research topic because I do find bees very interesting and crucial to our environment. They’re such small creatures yet they have a huge impact, and I think the first step to keeping the bees safe is to understand why bee population is declining in the first place. I think it’s very interesting that there is CCD is an actual phenomenon and I never knew about CCD. I learned several new things from this, thank you!
The topic I am interested in researching is the decline of the bees. I know that the number of bees is declining quite quickly and I wanted to know what we can do to stop it. I believe that keeping our environment
What and interesting topic, I really enjoyed reading about it, those poor bees. While reading this I instantly thought about the Bee Movie, if you have seen it, it reminds me of the part of when the bees don’t have to work anymore supplying pollen to the flowers and making honey. The animated world in the movie was depicted as gloomy and without beautiful trees our flowers. As humans it is important to take responsibility for our actions. If bees continue to die off the world will become I would like to say like the movie, and it won’t be because they aren’t working. It’s crazy how much bees help our environment.
I would love to learn about how I could help, thank you for sharing
Anna, I quite like your post. While I agree that saving the bees is important and good for the world, I can’t say that I am very excited about personally planting shrubs that will attract the little monsters. Alas, the environment wins. Nice post.
This post is great. I couldn’t agree with you more and it’s disappointing how close minded our world still is. It drives me crazy when people misdefine the word “feminism” and I’m really happy you chose to include it’s definition in your article. This is very well written and thank you for putting this post out there!
This is an interesting post to read because I’m currently reading a book focusing on this difficult argument. I myself am having a hard time on what to believe is the right thing to do. It is a very hard thing to make a decision on. Great work with your facts and citing!
I’m really happy you’re researching this topic. It blows my mind that women are still treated so inferior to men. So far it sounds like you have some great information and I think that you will write a great paper. Good luck!
Hi Cami! I really enjoyed reading this article. I agree with you when you say that the arts should be incorporated in the school system. I think it is something that keeps the students engaged and make them enjoy school more than they usually do. I know from being a student that I have always loved my art classes not only because it gives me a…[Read more]
I really enjoyed reading this. I agree with you on every aspect. I wish young women in our society cared less about how they looked, but more about the personalities of each individual. I try my best not to conform to what society says is the right way to look, but even then I feel self conscious about the way I look. It’s sad that looks are such…[Read more]
I completely agree with you. Up until my freshman year, I had gone to public schools. Then my parents decided to send me to a private school that enforces uniforms quite strictly. We get a detention if we don’t have our shirts tucked in and I don’t believe that is a good learning atmosphere for kids. They are uncomfortable and everyone…[Read more]
Hi Anna! I couldn’t agree with you more. I wake up around the same time as you do and I have the same problems. Mornings are hard and going to school so early is difficult. I fall asleep in most of my morning classes and it’s very hard to concentrate. Not only do I not get enough sleep, but I also don’t eat breakfast becauseI try to get in as much…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
