PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This library center is designed to be used in a school library, but it can be used just as easily as a literacy or science center in a classroom. Students will observe birds at a window birdfeeder (if you have a window), or on a web camera live feed such as the Cornell Lab Bird Cams. Using library resources (either print or online), students will formulate a question (or two), then answer their questions and cite the resources they used.

Included in this product:
✎ Lesson plan aligned to PA Common Core and Academic Standards, National Common Core Standards, and AASL Information Literacy Standards
✎ Center sign with "I will" statements in PDF and editable Word file formats
✎ Printable observation/research notebooks for students in 2 versions in PDF and editable Microsoft Publisher file formats.

The "simple" notebook version has a simpler bibliography and shorter research section, while the "in-depth" notebook version has full citations for the bibliography and a longer research process to accommodate different grade or ability levels.

Please DOWNLOAD THE PREVIEW for more information about this product.

Resource Requirements:
You will need some access to books and/or online websites about local birds for students to complete their research. I have included World Book Online (TM) as a resource in the bibliography notebook, but other databases or a collection of reliable websites would also suffice depending on your students' needs and information literacy skill level.
