In quarter 2, students will be learning about animal and plant structures. We will start by observing birds. Students will soon notice that birds have different shaped beaks. We will do a bird beak simulation where students will try to “eat” different foods with different shaped “beaks” and they will learn why eat beak is shaped the way it is and make connections to real birds and their beaks and the food they eat. We will then move on to other animals and even plants to learn about their structures and how they help them survive!
