For the Birds ~ Book and Activities for the Week of March 7th
I can't believe we are almost done with our bird unit! It has been so fun! Not only have we learned about different birds, but we have learned about many other things like adoption, the state of Oklahoma and this next week we will touch on the topic of homelessness.
Our focus book will be Fly Away Home written by Eve Bunting and illustrated by Ronald Himler.
I have checked out several books from the library on homelessness and we will have many discussions about it.
We will do a maze to help the puppy find his way "home", found here. And we'll do the birdhouse maze found here.
We will also start discussing the importance of our birdhouses and will do some shopping for a new birdhouse to hang from the Shepard's Hook I scored on a recent dumpster dive.
And as "chance" has it, our Homeschool Coop has a cool field trip to the airport on Thursday.
We will take off the next week for Spring Break and then when we get back we will start discussing bird nests and providing nesting materials for our Spring birds.
