We are currently doing a unit on Texas woodlands and one of the dads was kind enough to gift the class a giant hornets' best. This thing is shaped like a football and about 2 feet long and a foot and a half in diameter. The children have been extremely fascinated in it and have been asking many many questions. The most frequent one being if it's a "bee hive" like they see on TV and if there's honey inside. It truly is an amazing specimen but it is huge, I was wondering what are your thoughts on the educational value of cutting it open as a class activity? On one hand the thing looks amazing intact but in the other hand I think this could be a fun interactive learning experience and I do not want to have to store that thing after our woodlands unit.
