Due to a change in suppliers, there is a slight modification in the design of the birdhouse that is not reflected in the video instructions. An information sheet will be sent with the supplies to your school. This modification will not change the overall design of the birdhouse shown in the picture.

 

Description: Trudie Goodwin is an avid bird watcher who keeps good company with an owl. Together they share their love of bird caretaking with your students, teaching them about the basic needs of birds, their likes and dislikes, and even about clever distraction display techniques that some birds use to throw off their predators. Additionally, your students will build a wooden birdhouse that they get to take home and use year-after-year! Students will use a water-resistant wood glue as a fastener for their project. Nails and/or screw will be sent home for parents to reinforce the project if they choose.

What Teachers Are Saying

Grade 2 TeacherConstable Daniel Woodall School

Birdhouse is a great sized product that kids get to take home. It was a fun project that the kids enjoyed building. I like that there were a couple of mini breaks planned out during the project to allow time for projects to be checked and glue to dry. Steps for building the birdhouses were clearly presented and easy to follow. (Field Trip On-Demand program)

S.F., Grade 1 TeacherAldergrove School

I absolutely love the fact that the children each have a birdhouse to take home with them when they are done. The hands-on project is so much fun for them, and they are so excited to make their birdhouses. This is the 2nd year I have done this field trip, and both times my students have been excited to learn more about birds after we have finished building their birdhouses. I appreciate the Presenter’s patience and enthusiasm while teaching my students! (In-School program)

M.E., Kindergarten TeacherNew Norway School

It was very relevant to our curriculum for a number of outcomes. Students were able to build a 3-D structure that related well to our studies about birds and about caring for our environment. Parent interest was high and we had excellent response and participation from parents. The Presenter brought a model, outlined the steps in order and monitored the progress as the project was in construction. Students also had choices in the paint colours for decoration. Students enjoyed the movement and novelty of the breaks. Students were so proud to take their colourful and useful projects home. (In-School program)
