Product Description
Get ready for a STEM adventure with Beth the budding ornithologist! Students will choose which challenges Beth should try as she watches birds. Students will learn about pollination, bird beaks and feeding behaviors, and other fun facts about various birds. Based on their choices, they will encounter different STEM challenges.

Materials Needed: In addition to containers of water, you can use any materials you have, but I recommend index cards, tape, paper, pompoms, pipe cleaners, gummy candies, and pencils. Optional but nice-to have materials are twigs and sticks, feathers, and yarn.

Please note: if you are doing this with 2nd grade, you may need to read the story aloud with them.

NGSS Alignment: This resource supports the following NGSS standards:
2-LS2-2. (pollinating and pollination)
2-LS4-1. (compare animals)
K-2-ETS1-1, K-2-ETS1-2, K-2-ETS1-3, 3-5-ETS1-1, 3-5-ETS1-2, 3-5-ETS1-3

Contents
→Instructions and sample images
→12-page story book to guide your students through the engineering design process. The adventure storybook will have students complete three STEM challenges. One follow up challenge is also provided.
Possible STEM Challenges include: hummingbird tongue/eating, pollinator, wading bird exploration (stabbing beak, filtering beak), and nest. The follow-up challenge includes a paddle challenge that explores the differences between webbed and unwebbed feet.
