As part of a project called Kids Afield, a K-1 class of students has been exploring what will make our schoolyard more bird friendly. Working within the limitations of time and curricular restraints, this is a long term project that will continue year-to-year. Students are maintaining photo records of what they do, so each new year the project can move a bit further. This winter the focus was on discovering where the best places to hang birdfeeders are. The project is inquiry based and works from students’ questions and directions.
