Every group chose an animal to help, and designed a feeder out of recyclables that would help that specific kind of animal (will it hang from a tree or does it need legs to stand on?). We used our plan to assemble our feeder, and we'll add it to our Science Journal. The fun part will be visiting our feeders soon to look for telltale signs that any animals have been eating from our feeders! We have so much to learn about the natural world in our own backyard.
This is the kind of activity that gives us a great idea about your child as Scientist, Speaker, and Designer. Click on the pictures to see what we're saying about our design, our part of the work, what will happen, or what we are doing.
