Just a collection of things I have gathered.
Make a class book about Bees (KWL)

Bugs make noise to attract mates or warn other of danger. Many rub different body parts to make this noise. Become a "bug" band. Flies hum by beating their wings, june bugs by blowing air through their spiracles and crickets and grasshoppers by rubbing their hind legs against their forwings.

How many insects are compound words?

Let's Sing: Do you like to Buzz? (Do your ears hang low)

Do you like to buzz.
Are you covered all in fuzz?
Do you call a hive a home
In the garden where you roam?
Do you know how to make honey,
Are your stripes a little funny?
Do you like to buzz?

A bee is on me by lasting lessons

A bee is on my bonnet

A bee is even on my toes.

Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
This bee is bugging me.
Help me! Help me!
How can I be free?

A bee is in my hair
A bee is in my pants,
A bee is in my ears
A bee is making me dance.

Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
This bee is bugging me.
Help me! Help me!
How can I be free?

The bee is near my socks
The bee is near my shoes,
Bee, I know how to take care of you!

Lightning Bug ( You are my Sunshine)

I'm like a "lite brite"
I have a night light.
I fly in circles, up in the sky.
Some call me "lightning".
When my light's blinking.
But to my friends, I'm just "firefly."

While others sleep tight,
flash my night light,
fill the dark sky with light so bright.
Look out your window,
You'll see me flashing,
And then I'll turn off and tell you
"good night.
