Children will love following the step-by-step diagrams that show how to draw the birds that they can see in their own backyards! Children will learn that the food birds eat is related to their beak shape by participating in a fun science activity using common tools and food items. The step-by-step diagrams are easy to follow and can be used either as an independent activity or as a teacher directed group activity. Pages are copied and stapled together so that each student will have their own bird field guide! The booklet uses an emergent reader format focusing on the sight words this, is, and a. Cards for matching pictures of real birds to their names is included as well as 3 styles of lined paper to aid in your differentiated learning. This is a great supplement to a thematic Bird unit!
