A variety of hands on activities will be available.
Students may examine and dissect owl pellets, decorate a bird house, make a bird feeder, do a variety of bird art projects, put together bird puzzles, play a Jingo bird game, use their imagination with bird puppets, view a variety of cards, charts, and books about birds, as well as other activities.
