Bird Week (Tuesday)




Activities/Crafts:

Feather Painting: Set out tempera paint, feathers, and pieces of construction paper. Let the children experiment with using the feathers as paint brushes. Encourage them to make as many different patterns and lines as they can with their feathers.


Songs/Rhymes:

What Am I?: (Sung to: "This Old Man")


I am bright, I am red,

I have a crest upon my head.

If you can guess me,

Hurry up and try,

Before I fly into the sky!

(What am I?...Cardinal)


I am big, I am blue,

I love oaks and acorns, too.

If you can guess me,

Hurry up and try,

Before I fly into the sky!

(What am I?...Bluejay)


I am small, with a black head,

I come in winter to be fed.

If you can guess me,

Hurry up and try,

Before I fly into the sky!

(What am I?...Chickadee)


I am tiny, I am fast,

Not many people see me pass.

If you can guess me,

Hurry up and try,

Before I fly into the sky!

(What am I?...Hummingbird)


I am big, I am proud,

I'm the bird of our great land.

If you can guess me,

Hurry up and try,

Before I fly into the sky!

(What am I?...Bald Eagle)


I am old, I am wise,

I like to hunt before sunrise.

If you can guess me,

Hurry up and try,

Before I fly into the sky!

(What am I?...Owl)


I eat bugs, I eat bees,

I live in holes and peck on trees.

If you can guess me,

Hurry up and try,

Before I fly into the sky!

(What am I?...Woodpecker)


I am brown, with a red breast,

I come first in spring to nest.

If you can guess me,

Hurry up and try,

Before I fly into the sky!

(What am I?...Robin)
