Have you ever wondered what birds are saying as they sing, call, quack, and drum? With these dynamic activities from Bird Sleuth, you and your students will investigate why and how birds communicate and learn to appreciate the songs you hear everyday. Your download includes the Lesson Plans and Student Journal.
This lesson plan from Bird Sleuth, composed of three activities, explores modern birds and their dinosaur ancestors, adaptions for flight, and the relationship between structure and function. This free lesson plan is perfect for students grade 6-8 and those learning about evolution or adaptations!
THE SECRET POOL, by Kimberley Ridley and illustrated by Rebekah Raye, is the perfect anchor text for studying the vernal pool habitat. Vernal pools come and go with the seasons, so look closely or you'll miss them and their inhabitants!
