, Spoons trained volunteers from all over New York City visited 2nd grade classrooms throughout New York City to read The Honeybee Man by Lela Nargi and Kristin Booker. After reading this beautifully illustrated story describing the process of beekeeping and honey collecting on a rooftop in Brooklyn, students participated in a sequencing activity tied to Common Core educational standards and were given some honey to sample and a recipe for honey vinaigrette to take home and share with their families.
