Our K-2 module largely focuses on what makes a bird a bird, and why they are important. We invite your class to explore the key characteristics of birds, then discuss reasons why they think birds are important. At the very end we briefly touch on the three main conservation challenges that Bird Safe Guelph is tackling and suggest ways in which children can get involved.
We leave it up to the teacher to decide how best to deliver the content of this module, and provide a short (10-15 minute) presentation with examples of different topics to cover. Feel free to incorporate whatever we have provided or modify it as you see fit! At the end of this lesson plan we have provided two different activities that your class can choose to take part in to actively engage with the subject matter.
