The booklet provides a series of classroom activities to help pupils research the current issue of bee health. What are neonicotinoids and why is their use controversial? Why are bees in decline?

The resource provides a variety of views so that young people can reach an informed decision regrading their own views. Particular thanks are owed to Bayer CropScience, the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, the International Bee Research Association and the Soil Association for contributing their time and views. Bobbie Harvey of FACE initiated the activities.
