We have already studied two vertebrates: mammals and fish (please see previous posts). We are now on to our third vertebrate: birds! We have so many activities to reinforce the information of the characteristics of birds. Birds have feathers, they lay eggs, most build nests and can fly. We begin this by coloring a book about birds and discussing these features. Along with the bird book, we have small models of birds the children can look at and interact with while coloring their book.
We also have some sewing cards related to birds. This helps the child practice their sewing skills and adds a point of interest.
We have many more bird activities coming! Stay tuned! We are working on a real bird experience!
