This is a book that the kids color to teach them the nomenclature of a bird. I use this in my Science Center rotation when I turn our science center into a bird habitat. There are 8 pages including the cover page. The parts of a bird taught here are head, eye, beak, breast, wing, tail, and feet. The kids color the whole bird on the cover page and then each page after that they will color only the part of the bird listed for that page. For example the 2nd page says head. The child will color only the head to demonstrate that they comprehend where the head of a bird is. By actually coloring the nomenclature of a bird instead of just looking at a picture the kids master the main body parts and have fun doing so. For teachers that have your kids journal in the Science Center these pages can be taped or glued right into the journals. (The 8 pages that you receive are not colored. Each page of the book is a half sheet of 8 1/2 by 11. Print out the 4 pages and cut them in half. This saves paper when copying and also allows you to use it in journals.) My kids love making their own bird books! They love taking them home and "quizzing" their parents!
