First Grade Project on Birds

Jenn Alldrin Langhus First Grade Teacher from Portland, Oregon.

I am a First Grade teacher in Portland Oregon. I do a bird unit in the fall and am looking for ideas to turn this content into a lesson using project based learning. I love the idea of allowing the students to question and discover on their own as much as possible. I am looking for any ideas, thanks!

How about having them participte in the annual Great Backyard Bird Count? http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/ They could then create graphs of their counts of the various species and talk about how they know if the count is accurate. The next GBYBC is in February.
