Birds Are Together, but They Have All Lost a Feather!
Oh, no! Our birds are losing their feathers!
To get this party started, I showed the following video to the first graders.
Kids drew birds with me giving basic instructions..
Kids added details.
Kids outlined with a sharpie.
Kids painted with tempera paint.
We glued the feathers the color of the bird to the paper. Kids loved using feathers and thought it was fun to have a feather falling off the bird. Not every feather was the exact color, but is every feather on a bird the same color?
There are 12 birds here. I do not particularly like even numbers. I prefer odd numbers, like 3. Ever heard Bob Marley sing "Three Little Birds?" This video has over 18 million views. Crazy, huh?
