Last school year, our Kindergarten students learned about birds. This included learning facts, reading books about birds, counting and measuring bird things as part of math lessons, and more. However, Ms. Louise was sure to engage the students further with plenty of hands-on activities.
One of the fun hands-on projects these students did was make their own birdfeeders. Students had learned about what birds eat and the importance of high density nutrients to sustain all the things that busy birds do. This was evident when listening to the conversations students had during the making of the bird feeders as they excitedly noted the importance of “more peanut butter” in order to attach “more birdseed!”
