At the end of last term, I took a survey of the students to see what kinds of practical skills they would be interested in learning about. If the skills were something I am knowledgeable about and they fit into my practical class plans, I added them into the curriculum.
One skill the students were interested in was bee keeping. I couldn't take them all out to look at bees without bee suits (just imagine that disaster), but I borrowed some equipment to show them and teach them about in class. They had lots of good questions, like about how to get bees to move into a hive, how to know when honey is ready to be harvested, and about the differences between types of hives.
Now, the bee suits I borrowed aren't the best quality, but they at least gave the students enough of the idea of the importance of making sure there are no holes where the zippers end, tucking their pants into their socks, and making sure their nose doesn't touch the net in front of their face.
It was not difficult finding volunteers to try the suits on and all the students immediately whipped out their phones to take pictures of these guys:
