Need an self-paced science project for your kiddos? Check this out! My students LOVED observing, identifying, drawing, and reporting the eating patterns of their backyard birds.
The product prompts students to write notes over several days, take a picture from their yard, draw birds they see, and compose a reflection paragraph at the end.
Complete with illustration and writing spaces, as well as a thorough rubric, this project is ready to go!
NOTE: We made bird feeders together in class for the students to put in their yards, but there are also fantastic YouTube videos featuring birds, if you chose to go that route.
