I’ve been thinking a lot about Spring and what it will bring. Maybe it will symbolize an end to my morning sickness and taking learning outdoors again. It’s made me think of bird watching and how much fun it was. There are so many wonderful resources for bird themed activities. I hope these ideas get you thinking about spring too.
See our Bird Watching from last year. We checked out a local “bird watching” book from the library, used binoculars to search for birds and recorded our findings with crayons on a bird line drawing.
Totally Tots has an amazing Bird Themed Sensory Tub. I hope I have the energy to make one of these this Spring.
The Pinay Homeschooler shares many ideas in her Study of Birds Post including the “Parts of the Birds” cards from Montessori Print Shop and an amazing, handmade bird puzzle. I’m thinking of doing this with felt to use with our felt board.
Montessori Print Shop has a free Bird Matching Game.
The eBook, Montessori At Home! suggests making a bird house using a kit from an Arts & Crafts Store.
My Little Princess World shares many ideas in her post Our Birds Unit, my favorite one being “matching the bird models to the corresponding cards”.
