As good scientists do, let's learn from a great book! We like this one from James Bruchac.
Wow! That is some great information about the differences between animals. This week, we are going to focus specifically on the bird family. There are a few things birds have in common. They all have 2 feet and wings. They are covered in feathers. They have a beak or bill, and they lay eggs. Did you know that birds can also be very different? One big difference is the sounds that different birds make. Here's an online game that will allow you to try and match the sounds of birds to pictures that could help you remember them. Are you a Bird Song Hero? Click the picture to go to the game.
