Our class is so excited to start our Project Feeder Watch program this year! This is the third year in a row that Mrs. Fraher’s class has participated in this project through Cornell University. Why not start it out with a bang?
Mrs. Goucher’s fourth grade class joined us one sunny Friday morning along with parents from both classes. There was a great deal of excitement from both rooms. Students had a great time participating in activities centered on birds. Owl pellet dissection, making bird feeders, learning bird calls, going on a bird hunt, and creating bird art using different materials were just a few fun projects they were involved with.
Are you interested in seeing what we did? Well, check this out:
Here some things our class likes about birds:
Trevor: I like that there are so many different kinds of bird and that they are so colorful.
Avery: I think it is cool that some birds can talk.
Tyler: I like birds because they look so cute when they peek into our classroom window.
Brooke: Birds puff up their feathers and it makes them look like a puffball.
Alexis: That all species of birds make different sounds and you can tell the different birds by their sounds.
Garrison: It is interesting to look at all of the species of birds because they have different beaks, feet and feather colors.
Kyle: I think it is cool that they can takes a bunch of sticks and with their beak they can make a nest.
Emma: I like birds because you can have them as pets and feed them.
Trinity: Some birds are nocturnal, like an owl and that you can’t hear their wings flap because of the special feathers they have.
Tyler: I like birds because they help spread pollen to make flowers.
Skyler: I like birds because they are so different and some don’t even fly.
Anne: I like watching how their patterns change on their feathers and they get more beautiful as they grow.
