It’s officially springtime, and after thinking of plants and blooms, our thoughts turn to our feathered friends returning from warmer climes. Ask your students if they’ve noticed more birds lately. Research bird migration patterns in your area and take your class outside to shake up your routine. It can be a fun exercise, teaching both mapping and connecting your students with mature.
Here’s several bird migration resources for you to explore:
- The Purple Martin Conservation Association collects Purple Martin migration reports from all across North America
- Hummingbirds.net – not only can you learn all about the birds, you can interact with over 15 years of migration maps
- eNature’s Regional Bird Migration Maps
- and then, of course, you could browse all the images for March bird migration maps apps
- Read about BirdCast, the “Shazam” of bird watching apps
- Online, explore the Smithsonian’s migratory bird center
