You Oughta Know About This Eagle Cam - {Blog Hop & Freebie}

Today I am linking up with Jasmine at 
Buzzing with Mrs. McClain for her 
You Oughta Know Blog Hop

Have you heard? Have you seen? 
The eagle cam at Berry College is all the rage amongst students near and far. 

Yes, indeed...there is a mama eagle and a daddy eagle that apparently will remain "an item" a couple for years and years. 

We tuned in last year for the first time and we were blown away by the live streaming of this eagle family.  

We were "up close and personal" as we observed the lifecycle of eagles. 
We might as well have been IN the nest as the parent eagles took turns sitting on the eggs, keeping the newborn eaglets warm and protected, and feeding them freshly caught fish and other small animals.

Here is the link if you would like to tune in as well. 

The Eagle Cam at Berry College

The eaglets are 7 weeks old now and they have changed so much since their initial debut when they were just tiny little balls of light gray fuzz.

Some of my favorite pics:
Eaglet "hug" at 4 weeks old
Beautiful! Their feet!!! 3 1/2 weeks old
There are lots of photos and information on the site as well. 

My kids have loved the eagles for 2 years. 

Therefore, I wanted my students to write about the eagles, but I couldn't find a resource that fit what I had in mind. So, I made a booklet for the students to record their observations as well as the information that they had gathered.

Keeping an Eagle Eye on the Eagle Nest

{A Writing Activity}
This is a fun way to research and to write about the lifecycle of an eagle. The students record observations and illustrations in these little booklets. 
What student does not like to write in booklets?

Look at the students' booklets! They were super proud!

Below is a preview of the eagle booklet resource.

If you are a PebbleGo fan, then you may like this organizer to help with your research. 

You can get a free copy {HERE}. I have also included an organizer with no lines if that is what you need instead. 

Thanks for stopping by!
