We have been super busy learning all about spring. One part of our studies was to learn about the habits of birds in the spring. We learned birds build nests, lay eggs, and take care of their babies until they are old enough to leave the nest. To give this a "wings on" feel, we made a set of wings to wear.
I cut wing shapes from butcher paper (large sheets of construction paper would have also worked). Then students had to snip the edges so they resembled feathers. This was a great fine motor workout with scissors for the little learners. Small strips of sentence strips were then stapled on each feather so the loves could slip them on their arms.
To help them understand what type of things to look for and how to go about the process of building a nest, we watched the following video.
Now, for your freebie! It can be used as Easter, chicks, birds, spring, and a five senses activity!
