We are learning all about birds! We began the unit by asking questions, then putting those questions into an affinity diagram. This allowed us to develop categories for our questions. Next, we read about bird feet. We have also read about bird migration and bird feathers.
Creating Nest Bags: Our first project was to create nest bags for the birds in our area. We filled mesh bags with dried grass, hair, lint, and various fibers, for the birds to access.
Creating Bird Nests: Our second project was to create a bird nest of our own. We examined two nests made by different birds, then tried our hand at making one ourselves. We were amazed at how birds build such detailed nests using only their beaks!
