I've been teaching science camp this summer and I absolutely love it! I enjoy teaching science and I've been doing this science camp for six years now! Here is one of my favorite lessons that we cover: All About Birds
We learn all about birds' nesting habits. This one is made out of a milk carton. I cut the holes out, because it is too hard for the little ones to do. Then they paste the Popsicle sticks on top, add the stick where the birds stand, and add the yarn to the top so they can hang it.
Next they learn all about how birds make nests by using different materials from nature. Then they get to make their own nest. We used crushed up brown paper bag/butcher paper as the base. Then they glue on crinkled brown paper and sticks. Finally they add little candy Easter eggs.
As a culminating activity they make a bird booklet out of foam paper. They write everything that they learned about birds in their booklet.
I made a little freebie for you all to grab if you are interested in making something like this. It would fit really well into first and second grade science when the kids are learning about animal habitats. Click on the picture to take you to the free download.
