1.  razumevanje teksta

The bee,like the ant,is a social insect. Bees live in groups in a  hive, and every bee does certain work that helps the other members of the group.

In a beehive there are three kinds od bees :the queen bee,the drones and the

workers.The worker bees go from flower to flower collecting nectar or juice,which is composed of sugar and water.Bees collect this nectar into the honey

sacks of their stored in the hive to be used as food during the winter months.

Some people keep hundreds off hives in order to sell the honey. They are called

Beekeepers. The beekeepers take honey from the hives and pack it in bottles or

jars. Honey  usually appears as a clear golden – coloured liquid, but it depends on the kind of flower from which the bees have taken the nectar.

                Honey is very good for health and a lot of people use it instead of sugar. Since honey is very sweet it is not taken in great quantities. People put it in tea, lemonade, use it to make cakes, but most of all , they take a spoonful in the morning and drink glass of water afterwards. Honey is found in

almost every home especially in the winter mounts because people believe that it

helps them stay healthy.
