Bird’s Eye View

We have been having fun bird watching this summer.  My girls have strategically placed bird feeders all over the backyard so they have a great view from their swing set or any window in the house.  By introducing some new kinds of seed and a few hummingbird feeders, we have invited some new visitors to our yard.  It has been a treat to see a beautiful bird that we have never seen before and look it up in our bird book.  We have even taken some wonderful photos!


What do picture when you think of a bird? Do you picture lots of feathers? There is a lot more to our feathered friends than just feathers! It’s a great time of year to learn about birds. Make your lesson planning easy with the 58-page Birds Project Pack from In the Hands of a Child. This high-interest, ready-to-assemble pack includes a 13-page Research Guide and 19 Hands-on Activities about how birds move, how birds communicate, life cycle of a bird, anatomy, habitat, migration, defense mechanisms, types of birds, bird watching ethics, value, and conservation of birds.


Teachers and Homeschool parents love our high-interest hands-on curriculum including Lapbook Project Packs, Notebooking Packs, and Thematic Unit Study Packs.  Enjoy your very own bird’s eye view and create a Birds Lapbook today!
