Birds of a Feather
Students will study three birds (Osprey, Snowy Plover, Black Skimmer) relevant to conservation efforts in Northwest Florida. Students will research using texts and internet, then collect data on a field trip to the beach, and finally develop a presentation and present their findings. Students will explore physical traits, migration tendencies, bird sounds, hunting, and nesting and reproducing. Students will develop their own data sets during the field trip. Findings will be enhanced using the visual arts via photography on the trip as well.
