This is a project that integrates science, social studies, math, and language arts!
Print the cards and set up the grid according to directions. Students pretend they are a bird on their migration. They travel north, south, east, or west (whichever way their card says) to the next station. They run into issues that birds on migration routes would face- anything from predators, to bad weather, to humans building things in their way. To finish the task completely they may have to count by 5s as they flap their arms, rest while they count backwards from 100 by 10s, or other math related tasks. At each station students pick up a card and glue into their mini book (also provided). After finishing their migration, students will use the picture cards in their book to rewrite and recreate their journey in the same sequence they experienced it.
Topics that are integrated.
science- migration, predators/prey, human impact on the environment, weather/storms impact on animals
social studies- compass rose, directions (north, south, east, west)
math- skip counting by 2s (forward and backwards), by 5s, by 10s (forward and backwards), backwards by 1s, odds and evens
language arts- writing, sequencing
art (if you choose this option)
