Birds in Our Back Yard

Introduce your children to the wonderful world of birds in their back yards, and give them a greater understanding of our environment in the process. They will have fun, connect with the natural world, and make many fascinating discoveries.

This lesson plan will teach your children to become more observant, to research and to learn about our most well-known birds. They will make a nature diary, increase their scientific knowledge and vocabulary, hone their artistic and practical skills and begin what will hopefully be a lifelong journey to learn more about the birds who share our environment.
