Building a Better Birdhouse
Navah, Jan
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v109 n5 p21-23 Jan 2010
In a discussion about architecture, the author's students learned that architects must consider their client's needs when designing a home. To complement their study of bird migration in science class, the author decided to ask students to "think like a bird" in order to design wooden birdhouses that they could take home and actually use. This article presents a project which gives students the opportunity to use their knowledge of bird migration and architecture to design and build a better birdhouse and provide a place for neighborhood birds to enjoy as well.
