Awaken your students curiosity and do a bit of art by doing a bird study. Begin by making bird feeders for your classroom or send them home with each student. Then ask your students to watch for activity at the bird feeder and record their observations in their very own Bird Journals! Each packet includes everything you need to make a complete journal for each student. I've also included super easy instructions for making bird feeders from empty milk jugs. Just for fun, consider adding an art activity to your bird study. My Valentine Birds pairs perfectly with this Bird Journal study and can definitely be done any time of the year.
