Delving Into Birds of the Northeast

In addition to studying plants and trees, our K/1 class is very interested in learning about birds! This week, we made a list of birds that we have seen around our school and homes. We talked about things that we know about birds. We discussed birds that we have noticed or that we find especially interesting. We began looking at many beautiful pictures. We took some time to examine the field guide that is available in the Pear Tree Yard in hopes of identifying some northeast park and backyard birds. We plan to continue this study throughout the year, and are looking forward to honing our identification skills and expanding our knowledge of all kinds of birds!
