Hi guys! Today I wanted to share with you our second nature study unit. This time our focus was all things birds. Here are some of the fun activities we worked on.
Some of the books we used during this unit study
Using the Nature Anatomy book the boys drew and labelled the different parts of a bird
We also learned about the 5 basic types of bird feathers.
Bird nests. I asked the boys to pick 4 of their favorite type of nest.
We also played this really fun bird bingo game.
Bird bingo in action
Anatomy of an egg.
To go with what we learned about an egg we did this fun experiment.
If you look really closely you can see some blue where the food color was absorbed.
My water wasn't as dark blue as I would have liked it because I ran out of food coloring but the boys were able to see some result.
We watched Bill Nye birds to help with our unit study
We also watched Magic School Bus cracks a yolk.
