Bird Migration Research

The students have been researching a bird from a list of birds I gave them. This list reflects some of the birds we might possibly see on Friday's field trip to Plum Island. Using the Computer Lab and/or the laptops, the students are visiting 3 bird identification sites I have posted. In addition, books and maps are available for them to use to help them complete a series of questions about their bird. They also have to label the summer (breeding) and winter ranges of their bird on a map of the western hemisphere. They also have to get a picture of their bird. They can download one from the Internet and print it or they can draw/paint a picture of it. This work is being done during science classes. The 3 bird identification sites are listed on the right hand side of this blog, too.
