Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how to identify eight common US birds by sound and sight, how to use binoculars, how to attract birds to their yard, how to spot birds with special eye tricks, how to walk silently to get closer to birds in the wild, and lots of fun facts about the most commonly seen animals in the forest. 
Homework will be to practice binocular skills and look for birds outside during the time in between class meetings. No worksheets or reading/writing work will be assigned. 
Binoculars. These are great! - Look for something lightweight and small, but not child specific, as those are usually low quality and hard to find birds with. Anything you already have will be fine. https://www.amazon.com/Aurosports-Folding-Binoculars-Watching-Concerts/dp/B06XT7M6P5/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=light+binoculars&qid=1601012393&sr=8-5 I will provide coloring pages and a one page info guide for each bird.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be a fun "quiz" at the end of the session. 
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be using information from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology - https://www.allaboutbirds.org/news/
This site is great for ID help, photos, information, and all things bird related.
