We are wrapping up our study on birds this week. Here are some of the activities we have really enjoyed….
Making a bird bath
Filling the bird feeders!
And lots of observing!
Sparrows, Black Winged Red Birds and Hawks! Yes, Hawks! I will try to get a pic tomorrow morning.
Bird Art….a directed draw, black glue and watercolors!
Making black glue with glue, a little bit of black paint and a lot of shaking!
We will continue our bird watching and identifying. I will also try to get a picture of the amazing (but noisy) hawks that have been hanging around. Maybe mating?!
We have used two great resources during our study. One, a local bird identifying book for our area and the other, Backyard Pets by Carol A. Amato. I love this book and the activity ideas from bird feeding to housing!
Happy bird watching!
