The Whales finished their study of birds this week (though we're noticing a continued interest in ornithology; with birdwatching happening during our outdoor learning time in the piazza, and out our classroom windows!). With research help from their Kestrel buddies at the Community School, the Whales have completed a beautiful Bird Encyclopedia. The book includes writing and scientific illustrations that inform the reader about bird habitat, diet, nest building, eggs, feet, beaks and more.
We will unveil the finished book on Wednesday of next week when our Kestrel buddies visit our classroom for a book share. Make sure to ask your Whale student to share information about their Northwest Bird!
