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! A full color teacher read aloud can be used to introduce each bird. 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! I have also included a Bird report template that can be done at the conclusion of the creation of the field guide.
