Adding ornithology to our homeschooling science started years ago when my daughter set up a “Bird Mart” outside out biggest window. She offered different foods and nesting supplies. She checked out a bird field guide from the library. She made graphs and charts. Everyone in the family got interested in her project. Looking out that window at the variety of birds was better than looking at the tv! She took her project to that year’s science fair and brought home a blue ribbon.
Here’s a collection of free resources for your family’s bird studies and budding ornithologists. I’ve also added some resources for bird related language arts and electives, too.
