Like all ________________________, bees have ________________________ legs, a three-part body, a pair of antennae, compound ________________________, jointed legs, and a hard exoskeleton. The three body parts are the ________________________, thorax, and abdomen (the tail end).

Bees can fly about 15 mph (24 kph). They eat nectar (a sweet liquid made by ________________________) which they turn into honey. In the process of going from flower to flower to collect nectar, pollen from many plants gets stuck on the bee's pollen baskets (hairs on the hind legs). Pollen is also rubbed off on flowers. This pollinates many flowers (fertilizing them and producing seeds).

Each tiny egg hatches into a worm-like ________________________, which eventually pupates into an ________________________ bee.
