Brownies identify birds by shape and color, then they collect data about the birds by keeping a tally of the ones they see while completing a backyard bird count simulation.

This printable activity pack helps Brownies fulfill Step 5 of the Brownie Shapes in Nature badge. It may be worked within the troop setting or at home by a single girl with adult support. Backyard Bird Count Simulation includes the bird count activity in both individual and troop versions, sample answer sheets, one backyard bird identification chart, one backyard bird match-up game, and ten backyard bird photo cards. All activity pages come in both black-and-white and color options.

Be sure to download the preview for a closer look.
