Turn to the page where the bee does the dance to show where the flowers were. Talk about how bees uses these dances to communicate.

Have a student use one of the patterns displayed on the chart paper to step on the corresponding plates. While the student is doing the "bee dance," have other students use the paper and pencils to record the pattern. When the dance is done, have students try to identify which dance it was.
