eat like a bird

Grades 2 and Up

Find out how the shape of a bird beak determines what it can eat.

Participants pretend to be birds to test different models of bird beaks.

By using their beaks (spoons, chopsticks, tweezers) students attempt to pick up various types of food (marbles, toothpicks.)

Participants take home the materials and the directions to make their own bird feeder.
