Every Third Bite - A Video All About Bees

Every Third Bite is a short (9 minutes) video all about the rapid disappearance of millions bees. The video, hosted on Snag Learning, examines some possible causes of the decline in the bee population and the ecological and economic impact of the bee population decline. As with all videos on Snag Learning the film is accompanied by a short set of discussion questions.

If you're interested in a much longer and more in-depth film about the decline of the bee population, Nature's Silence of the Bees (preview embedded below) is worth investigating. The video takes you inside bee hives and inside the labs of the scientists who are trying to figure out the cause of the bee population decline. The homepage for the episode offers links to additional scientific resources about bees.
