Included in the Bird Unit
This non-fiction bird unit helps children to learn many interesting facts about birds. Hands on activities will reinforce reading, writing and math skills. I believe all children would benefit from being able to identify and appreciate the birds in their neighborhood. I hope this unit helps to develop a love for our fine feathered friends!
