Students will explore local birds that overwinter in Massachusetts. They will be given model birds to identify and information about their overwintering behaviors and diet. Students will have to determine what would be the best food source for their bird based on options provided: mixed seed, sunflower seeds, acorns, etc. and then will be given the task of creating an ideal bird feeder for their birds’ given materials provided – we can also go outside to look for natural materials if the space/time allows. Students will find locations to put their bird feeders where they can be checked on to see what types of animals visited their feeders, if they were successful, and if there were any modifications students would make in the future.
