Cool Facts About Bees: Not all bees have two parents! In a colony of honeybees there is one special female called the queen. There are many worker bees who are female too but unlike the queen bee, they produce no eggs.

3
More Cool Facts About Bees: There are some drone bees who are male and do no work. Males are produced by the queen's unfertilized eggs, so male bees only have a mother but no father!

4
More Cool Facts About Bees: All the females are produced when the queen has mated with a male and so females have two parents. TO SUMMARIZE: – Males have one parent (female) – Females have two parents (F + M)

Make a Bee Family Tree START WITH: 1 Male GENERATION 1 1 Female ? ? GENERATION 2

7
Make a Bee Family Tree In groups of 3, make a family tree for a male drone bee. Count the number of MALE bees in each generation. Do you notice a pattern?

8
Whats the Pattern? Starting with the 3 rd term, each term in this sequence is the sum of the two terms that come before it This pattern is called the Fibonacci Sequence

9
