Part with the ground under your feet and fly free with your imagination with stories, poems, coloring pages and prompts about birds. Learn how they migrate. Reach higher as the parrots flying high at dawn. Learn what stories animal colors tell. Are those stories of camouflage, warning or courting?
Be ignited with interdisciplinary thinking discovering facts about the peacock. Introduce symmetry to children. What is the connection between the feathers' symmetry and courting colors?
Help children communicate effectively based on the story of a small zebra finch trying to get his voice heard.
The kids become coauthors and co-illustrators celebrating their creative thinking. Ignited by the poems, paintings and interesting facts about birds, they write and draw their own ideas. In the mean-time they bond with the animal world, and become curious about science.
