Author and teacher Carol Malnor, has put together another exciting group of activities to educate children on the joys of birds and birding. (If you missed the first installment, look for it here!) Today’s activities encourage children to get up, go outside, and explore their “inner bird”. In the first activity, “What’s your Wingspan?”, children will increase their awareness of the different sizes of the birds that are found in the book The BLUES go Birding Across America. In the second activity, “Physical Flit-ness”, kids are encouraged to move around and perform “bird activities” as they move from station to station. Whether performed by a group of children in a classroom setting, or one on one, these activities will help parents and educators encourage the next generation of birdwatchers.
