In the Spring of 2008 Anmore Elementary Students in grades 3 to 5 formed a Young Naturalists Club.

The goal was to learn about nature.

One of the projects focused on birds and ever since then Anmore Elementary has really “Gone to the Birds!”

Study and observe.

Naturalist, Ruth Foster, brought dead birds for us to identify.

Research and birdhouse building.

Challenge students each researched a different local bird and then painted their research onto a bird house.

The best way to get to know nature is by studying it in your own schoolyard.

A bird feeder was installed by parents at the school and students in Grade 1 through 5 have been bird watching at recess and lunch time.

Bird identification cards are given to anyone bird watching and sightings are recorded on our bird count chart in the school library.

Some kids even started bringing their own binoculars!

grade one to five students used smart boards and played computer games to try and identify specific bird sounds as either calls, alarms, or songs.

They helped identify birds they had seen in their own schoolyard.

Grades 4 & 5 Research

Grade 1 to 5 activities

Each student researched a different bird, they coloured their birds and then created silhouettes.
