Demonstration Hive plans?


Has anyone used a demonstration hive for a top bar before? Do any plans exist? Every year I wish I could take bees to my kids’ school classes, but haven’t taken the time to investigate a demo hive for top bars. This year their second grade is actually studying bees and I’d love to give them the opportunity to see them up close. Thanks for any help!


Might be a bit risky if one of the kids got stung. I’ve used an empty hive, photos, video, and books (lots of pics) to show kids from a homeschool group. Show them an actual comb, pollen, etc. with a nioce taste of honey.
