Honeybees can make honey by working together.

First, a scout honeybee finds a flower by flying. The bee then goes into the hive and does a dance. The faster it is, it means more pollen. The dance also tells the other bees where to find the flower. A different bee goes and finds the flower after watching the dance.

The bee takes pollen and brings it back to the hive. Bees drop pollen sometimes and it's called pollian, and it helps plants grow. Bees make honey out of the pollen and store some for the winter. Honey is made of pollen.
