What do birds eat?
Not all birds eat the same thing!
There are some birds that eat worms, some that eat fish and some that eat berries.
Some of the children wondered how birds were able to eat some of the things they do and they soon figured out how important beaks are!
We set out various materials,sunbutter,Cheerios,popsicle sticks, pipecleaners and tp tubes.We asked the children if they could make a bird feeder that hangs in a tree.
This activity was done in a group which provided the opportunity for younger students to emulate the solutions created by the older students rather than teacher directed solutions.
It didn't take long before we had varieties of hanging bird feeders.
