Since our initial inquiries concerning feathers our class has been talking about birds.
We set out various loose materials, corks, tp tubes, beans, sticks, tape and glue and and invited the children to make a bird.
We discussed the characteristics that are unique to birds.
The children worked hard to show us what they knew about birds.
In the below photo we see two birds, each made by the same child on different days.
So much more attention to detail on the second try!
These beautiful birds are displayed in our studio, some are hanging from the branch in the corner and some are on the green shelf . Please, if you have the time take a look.
