Build a Bird House. Grades 3-5.
Rushton, Erik; Ryan, Emily; Swift, Charles
In this activity, students construct bird nests and birdhouses. Students research a bird of their choice in order to design a house that will meet that bird's specific needs. The activity works well in conjunction with a high school level woodshop class where students would partner up. This activity requires an 80-minute time period for completion. (Author/SOE)
