FOR TEACHERS

Hello Teachers!

For many years, we have been able to make the learning process exciting, fun, and relevant.  Our biologist, Joe Rogers, often ties in fascinating science concepts with the live birds, and encourages students to get more involved in learning about nature and science.  We hope to extend that atmosphere of motivation to post-classroom visits by offering interesting extensions to our initial “Michigan’s Live Birds of Prey” program.  The following are some ideas and connections that we hope will help teachers as well as students to extend the lessons we bring to students.  This is just a beginning……………. Enjoy!

 

Teachers can order owl pellets from biological supply companies - this is a great "hands on" project to follow the live bird program.
