Building Bird Nests

This week our class has been interested in birds. On Wednesday we watched a video of a bird building a nest and talked about what birds' nests are made of. We talked about how birds collect twigs, leaves, and other things to use for their nests. When we went outside, we pretended we were all birds and collected lots of small sticks. Then I gave the children paper and glue...

and they set to work...

Here is one of the finished products:

Today, when all the glue was finally dry, we made these little Pom-Pom birds to sit in the nests.

It may not be apparent at first glance that they are birds but, if you look closely, you can see that the blue one has two pink eyes and a purple beak.
