Learning From Experts

| 1 Comment

This week we Skyped with experts in the field of science to learn more about birds and polar bears! Here is what we learned.

Bird Skype!

Today we did a bird skype called “Spot that Bird”. It took place in San Francisco, CA.  First we talked about the Pine Warbler, Cactus Wren, and Marsh Wren. The Pine Warbler’s habitat is the forest. The Marsh Wren’s habitat is ponds, swamps, or lakes. The Cactus Wren’s habitat is deserts. In a bird video they told us to spot how many birds you saw, and we we saw 12 types of birds

They also told us to write down what they looked like. Then they told us to write down what the birds were doing, and they were mostly eating fish. Finally they told us to write down what they sounded like. So I put quiet. In conclusion they asked us if we had any questions. That was our Bird skype or “Spot that Bird.”

1. Polar bears need sea ice so they can hunt seals.

2. They have sharp claws so they can grab the seal before they can run away.

3. They need flat sea ice.

4. Female polar bears sometimes have babies on the sea ice.

5. If we lose sea ice sea ice we could lose polar bears.

6. International polar bear day is on February 27th.

These are the facts I have for polar bears.

  1. Lucky students ! Two great learning experiences via Skype !
    I didn’t know there were 19 species of Polar Bears ! I did know they need sea ice to survive.
    Melting sea ice from global warming makes Polar Bear habitat smaller.
    Always enjoy learning about birds and their habitat. Our cat is watching birds right now as they feed on seed on the ground outside !
