Goal

Teaching about birds allows K-5 students to connect with, learn, and care about their environment. Students will understand birds, like humans, are dependent on a clean, healthy environment while having K-5 students focus on the importance of conserving their habitat.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will be learning science standards through hands on learning and observation. Students will use their interactive science notebooks to journal the on-going process throughout the school year. Students will be able to apply their knowledge on district and state assessments.
SC.3.L.15.1 Classify animals into major groups (mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, arthropods, vertebrates and invertebrates, those having live births and those which lay eggs) according to their physical characteristics and behaviors.
SC.5.L.17.In.1: Identify features of common plants and animals that enable them to survive in different habitats (environments).
SC.5.L.17.Su.1: Recognize that many different kinds of living things are found in different habitats.
SC.5.L.17.Pa.1: Match common living things with their habitats. (Interdependence)
SC.5.L.15.1: Describe how, when the environment changes, differences between individuals allow some plants and animals to survive and reproduce while others die or move to new locations.
SC.5.L.15.In.1: Identify ways that plants and animals can be affected by changes in their habitats, such as lack of food
or water, disease, or reduced space.
SC.5.L.15.Su.1: Recognize ways that plants and animals can be affected by changes in their habitats, such as lack of food or water.  

 

Benefits to my students

Birds play a dynamic role in nature. Birds perform a multitude of functions that help sustain our ecosystem. Without birds, the animal kingdom would not be the same. Birdhouses provide a safe haven for birds to continue creating a balance in natural order. Bird lays eggs-eggs hatch and become baby birds-baby birds grow to fledglings-fledglings grow to adult birds-adult birds add to the bird population-strong bird populations eat seeds-fertilize soil-add biodiversity-and control pests. Students from grades k-5 will learn about the habitat of various birds.the This benefits students by fostering the cognitive, social and emotional learning of all grades and ages.
