Nest Building added 8-24-00 Original Author Unknown

Give the children small paper sacks.  Then take the children on a walk and let them collect items that a bird might use to make a nest, such as twigs, leaves, grass and pieces of string.  After the walk, have the children fold down the sides of their bags to form "nests".  Have them set their bags outside so that the birds can use the contents for nest building. Check back after a day or two and see how much the birds took.


Bird Feeder added 9-9-02 Submitted By: Tami J. Daniels

Just outside our classroom window, the children and I (2-year old class) placed a bird feeder on a "shepherd's hook."  It has been the most wonderful experience for them and me.  We used it as an extension of our classroom science center (habitat, feeding habits, bird varieties, etc).  The kids let me know when it needed refilling and we went outside together to keep the birds supplied with seed!  I've kept it up through the rest of the year - try it and be amazed. 


Grow Birdseeds added 3-24-03 Original Author Unknown

Need: birdseed, sponge plastic plate

Directions: Place a sponge soaked with water in a plastic plate and allow child to
sprinkle it with birdseeds. Place the plate in a sunny place and watch for the seeds to sprout! The seeds will continue to sprout as long as the child keeps water in the plate.
