Homeschooler’s Guide to Project FeederWatch
The Homeschooler’s Guide to Project FeederWatch is a FREE eight-page document that contains ideas for families participating in Project FeederWatch. These lesson starters will help you teach multiple subjects using birds and will inspire creative ideas for science related art projects, designing and building feeders, strengthening math skills, and assisting children in conducting a research project. In addition, participation in citizen science will improve a child’s observation and note-taking skills while providing a meaningful way to use the internet: to explore and enter data.
In addition to the lesson starters, BirdSleuth has also created a full curriculum kit with homeschooling families in mind. The Science Investigator’s Kit for Homeschoolers comes complete with lesson plans and supplemental resources, such as a children’s first field guide, CD Rom, student journal, Bird Log Book, and Project FeederWatch membership.
