Did you know that they almost chose the TURKEY as a national bird for the United States! I wonder what that would have been like? This is a lot of bang for the buck under the topic of Bald Eagles. It is a versatile package, including a power point about bald eagles, as well as two map activities complete with answer keys (one on bald eagle homes in the World, and one on what places use the eagle as a symbol). For math, I've included a bald eagle that can be plotted through x,y plotting, or the students can find the x,y plots by looking at the picture. There is also a set of word problems that require regrouping and multiplication. In writing, there are prompts related to the bald eagle, including whether or not it was a good choice to represent the United States, and what animal you would choose to represent yourself or any given country. Accompanying the prompts are activities to help students learn to generate ideas and organize their ideas. Topics covered in this package are as follows: How Eagles (in general) are used as symbols throughout history and the world, how the bald eagle was chosen as a symbol of the United States and the U.S. seal, how bald eagles are classified as raptors, how big bald eagles actually are, what the term "bald" actually means, where they exist naturally in the world, how they are capable of flying, what the babies are like and how they nest, what their diet is, and how they are protected as a species and have come back from dwindling populations today. The finishing slides on the powerpoint can be printed out and turned into a bulletin board presentation, notebook inserts, or large flash cards.I include some pinterest links to give you ideas on how you might be able to implement the inserts in this package.Answer Keys are included where they apply. Enjoy!
