What to Do
- IF YOU'RE THE SCOUT BEE:
Hide your hive's flowers. Then follow directions to dance the Honey-Bee-Bop. The dance will tell the worker bees where and how far away the flowers are.
- IF YOU'RE A WORKER BEE:
Watch the Scout Bee's dance. Work with your hive-mates to understand the directions. Then go for the flowers!
Dance the Honey-Bee-Bop to Communicate:
- Direction to the flowers: The "straight run" points to flowers.
- Distance to flowers: The NUMBER and SPEED of the Honey-Bee-Bops in your dance tell how far away the flowers are.
