Birding 2022

Use birds to engage students in science content

Ornithology, the scientific study of birds, provides real-world science applications for teachers and students. Observation and investigation skills learned during bird study enhance student motivation to experience science both indoors and outdoors and apply science concepts to the natural world.
Participants will:
  • strengthen their knowledge of local birds
  • connect science curriculum to ornithology content
  • examine tools and technology to be used with their students
  • develop ideas to use both indoor and outdoor spaces to lead bird lessons throughout the year connected to grade-level science curriculum
