Inquiry Learning About Birds

Our BIG question that we are trying to answer is ...

How can we help our endemic and native birds and why do we need to?

We watched a YouTube clip about the murmuration of starlings. Watch this and then ask us what it is all about!

On Thursday 16th March we were learning about birds. We had a visiting expert, who was Alannah's Mum, and she taught us about beaks, feet, bones and what birds eat!

Here are some photos of us looking at bird's bones. 

Bird's bones are hollow. They have struts inside to keep them strong but they are not filled with marrow so that they are light and they can fly!
