WEST WYOMING — Michelle McHale, the mother of nursery school students Harper and Declan, recently visited The Cookie Corner to teach the children about beekeeping.

She brought in her suit, smoker and an enclosed observation hive.

The children saw a queen bee lay eggs, viewed the worker bees taking care of her, saw bees in the larva stage and even spotted some honey.

The students also completed crafts which included a classroom wall hive.
