Watching and observing birds are a good way to introduce science to young children. Watching nests being built, comparing different size and colors of eggs, and colorful feathers can be used as learning opportunities to sort, and compare.
- Disposable Camera
- Bird Stickers / Scrapbooking pages
- Printable Bird Watching Book Template
Print a copy of the Bird Watching Book Template. Print Cover onto cardstock for durability. Fold paper, punch holes in the pages and secure with yarn or string. Take pictures of birds using a disposable camera or inexpensive digital camera. Write down what you observe about the bird habitat, what they eat, building nests or hatching baby birds.
The bird book can be embellished using bird stickers, cut outs from magazines, and by using scrapbooking materials. Many birds come and go seasonally, therefore, it’s a great project to add onto.
