Feathers and Flight
Discover the similarities and differences of various feather and flight adaptations through interactive and creative activities. This adaptation lesson is great as a stand-alone program or a fitting follow-up program to "Barr Lake Bird Watch" or "Barr Lake Banding Station" field trips.
Students will learn how birds’ physical features increase their ability to survive in Colorado habitats. Students design their own habitat and create a bird using clay with adaptations to survive in their habitat. This is a great stand-alone program or as a follow-up program to one of our field trips.
Migratory Mapping or Migratory Data
Students’ understanding of migratory patterns through geography or data analysis will be enhanced as students discover factors that drive bird migration. Students use real bird banding data to map migratory routes or graph data of four bird species banded at the banding stations.
1/2 Day Bird Festival at Your School
Upper elementary students become bird conservation role models to lower elementary students. Older students will be trained on festival activities and then lead the half-day festival for the lower elementary students. Each festival is designed to meet the needs of your school's curriculum and can cover multiple life science standards.
