Description

Class Experience

Students will learn what they need to birdwatch, where to birdwatch, and how to birdwatch. I will go over the importance of staying safe outdoors by wearing the proper attire, giving wildlife space, avoiding unsafe areas to birdwatch, and to ALWAYS go birdwatching with adult supervision. 
After taking this class, learners will know what 4 characteristics to look for to identify birds: Size and Shape, Color and Pattern, Behavior, and Habitat. 
 Birdwatching has been a favorite hobby for most of my life. My grandfather was an avid birdwatcher and he passed on that interest to me. I’m excited to honor his legacy and share my passion with beginning birdwatchers.
 I have been in the education field for nearly two decades as an Early Childhood Educator, Nanny, and Musical Theatre Instructor/Director. As someone who believes in the importance of ongoing lifelong learner, I have taken multiple Early Childhood Education courses at local colleges, enroll in local educator trainings, and take courses online in a wide variety of subjects. I also have a Child Development Associate in Family Child Care.
As this is a one time class, there is no assigned homework. However, I will provide resources students may use after class to go birdwatching.
There are a few tools I suggest using in birdwatching, but are not necessary: -Binoculars -Journal/Paper and Pencil/Pen -Birdwatching Apps (these are free). I recommend Merlin Bird ID or Audubon Bird Guide
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Some information used in this class is from www.allaboutbirds.org.
