16. Illuminated Quran: The Bee

This surah says that Allah (s) knows all that we do openly and all of our secrets.

Discussion question:  do we act differently when we are with people or when we are alone?  Are we alone when we are not around people?

This surah says that Allah (s) taught the Bee to build its cells in hills, trees and in human habitats.  For this lesson I am planning to play a You Tube video about hive construction.

Discussion question:  what sort of places do bees live in?  How are they they similar to where we live? How are they different?

Please share your ideas for teaching children about the Tafseer of Quran.
