Engaging science lessons brought to you by your local birds!
Our friends at Pennington Wild Birds are working with us to educate and engage children in the pleasures of feeding and watching birds. This free download is perfect for elementary educators. These easy-to-use and fun activities will help you teach science content year-round through your local birds.
We also invite educators to get a free Pennington Window Bird Feeder to support kids in observing birds at your school or organization. Note: $6 shipping applies and we can only send the feeders to US schools and educational non-profit addresses, not residential addresses (as determined by UPS).
