Sizes of Birds: Use the picture of the birds for a visual comparison of birds going from smallest to biggest. (see bird sizes picture below) or only compare 2 different birds at a time (Ex. Hummingbird to flamingo and then eagle to chickadee).
Feathers: Have your child match each feather to the right bird by looking at the colors (see Bird Feather Matching)
Wingspan: Use a string to measure the “wingspan” of your child. Then use a second piece of string to measure the wingspan of a bird (Ex. Eagle: 5 feet, Hummingbird: 4 inches, Robin: 12 inches, or another bird wingspan listed above). You can compare the length of the bird to your child’s wingspan or see how it compares to things in your home.
Bird nests: Use this Bird Nest Shapes of 3 different birds’ nests and different shapes to compare. Instead of a T-chart, you can talk about what you see. You can ask which shape matched up to the birds’ nests the best (a circle, oval, triangle or square).
Shapes (circle or oval like birds’ nests): See if you can find different objects in your house that are round/circular like a birds’ nest. Count how many things you found.
