Science & Nature

Nature Explorers Camp: For the Birds

Grab your nature journal, or start a new one, and we'll learn about bird & feather anatomy, nests, eggs, and bird habitat. We'll practice our art skills, create bird centered crafts, and create bird habitat for our own backyard.

I am a mother and one of my main goals is raising confident, independent, and strong children.  My children are at ease in the natural world and have some to understand that we need to live in balance with nature and have developed a healthy respect for nature as well.  As an educator, I see how connecting with natures translate to success; academically, athletically and socially.  

I have had the opportunity to travel, camp, and hike most the United States.  I have also had the opportunity over the years to teach naturalist classes, backyard ecology, lead nature hikes, and host weekly garden and nature clubs.  
Students will be asked to make observations each day, either before or after class.  Students might also need additional time to complete their craft.
Before class, I suggest filling a bin with the following items: General Items: A journal or blank notebook Colored pencils Watercolor paints (optional) Binoculars Newspaper (for easy craft clean-up) Paint smock (for easy craft clean-up) Day 1: Bag of bird seed (2 or 3 cups) 2 Pie or cake pans (either foil or for craft use) Cookie cutters - assorted Lard or Peanut Butter 1 Cup Oats 2 or 3 feet yarn or ribbon Scissors Day 2: Terra cotta plant saucer Marbles, Pebbles, or Assorted Glass Stones to fill the saucer Acrylic paints Paint brush(s) 4 cups sliced fruit or solid berries: oranges, nectarines, apples, whole cranberries, grapes 2 yards heavy thread, string, or yarn Yarn or darning needle Day 3: 2 Eggs Flashlight Empty toilet paper tube Pie or cake pan Assorted bag of yarn and fabric scraps Collection of long bendable twigs and/or vines Scissors Day 4: Egg carton 6 egg shells (12 halves) 2 Cups potting soil 1/4 Cup bird seed
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessments will be provided upon request, and will be based on class participation.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
For the use of scissors, students will be asked to cut ribbon to 2 foot lengths to create their cookie cutter bird feeders. Students will  also be asked to cut their bag of yarn and fabric scraps into 1 foot lengths, and fabric scraps should be no more than 1 inch wide.  If you feel that your student cannot safely use scissors, please have these items cut appropriately before class.
