For the last two years the author of this study was giving educations for adolescents and adults about bees and beekeeping in Lithuania. It was noticed that despite the lack of general knowledge about bees, people are keen on improving their comprehension about social insects. However, starting from general educational programs for preschools and primary schools there was barely information about social insects. That was a reason for further analysis of how effective children can learn from integrated educational activities organised at school. The object of the study was preschool and primary school students from one school in Vilnius, Lithuania. The aim of this study was to analyse the feedback and questionnaires that were filled with preschool and primary school students before and after the education. Then to measure the impact of this education on students' knowledge, skills and attitudes. This study could help teachers to find more ideas for social insects topic in primary school. Moreover, it was revealed what are the most common misconceptions about bees and beekeeping so it could be used to avoid possible mistakes in pupil learning.
All in all, according to student reviews after education about bees and beekeeping, honey bees became more appreciable insect that was not before. And this is a little step for growing love for nature in the little human‘s heart.
