CLASSROOM – Birds
The classroom goes to the birds this week as we celebrate National Bird Day! The day involves a variety of activities that not only help us learn about birds, their habitat, and how they impact our environment, but also help us to attract them to our neighborhoods and how to protect their habitats. This week, the classroom offers a couple of activities to help students learn more about birds, too.
HOW TO OBSERVE in the CLASSROOM – Birds
Download and print this week’s projects to discover more about birds. You can also follow the suggestions below to help your students explore the days in their own way. It might surprise you what they discover! We’re often surprised by our own discoveries!
Celebrate Every Day in the Classroom by:
1. Asking a question about the day or observance and finding the answer.
2. Exploring the subject further. Whether you read a book, interview an expert, watch a documentary, or run an experiment, there is always more to learn about the observance.
3. Writing about the day or observance. You can write about what you learned or what the day means to you.
4. Telling someone about the day. You might be sharing information that is helpful to someone. Or, you might brighten someone’s day.
5. Solving a problem. Many observances discuss issues around the world that need fixing. How would you fix it?
6. Being creative. Draw, paint, build, design, bake, create your idea of what the observance means.
Of course, as always, sharing on social media isn’t required; learning is. But if you do, please use #NDCClassroom to share on social media.
