For the Birds ~ Week of February 28th Books and Activities
Next week we will begin by looking at some of the different State birds, by reading United Tweets of America by Hudson Talbott. Of course we will concentrate on the State bird of Oklahoma, the Scissor-tail flycatcher. We'll learn it's specific characteristics and call by visiting All About Birds and Birdzilla. And we'll do a fact and coloring page.
Then we will go on to do some additional studies on the State of Oklahoma. I checked out two at-level books from the library that we will read and discuss.
We will make a tornado in a jar.
We will go the grocery store and try to identify Made in Oklahoma (MIO) items.
We will listen to "Oklahoma", our state song, and try to learn it.
