Is it honey bee or honeybee?
When your students begin focusing on honey bees, one question you will need to address is the actual word or words. Your students will begin asking you if it should be one word or two.
As I began researching and creating these materials, I noticed some places said honeybees and others said honey bees. Spellcheck was telling me to write it as one word.
However, I found out that according to entomologists, it should be two words, not one.
Because you are talking about a type of bee, it is one word. Think of bumble bee or sweat bee. Other examples of insects that follow this two word rule are the house fly and gypsy moth.
