Today we read a great poem about a pelican. We studied bird photographs of birds with different types of beaks, then watched video clips of the birds using their beaks to get food. We used household objects to compare the beak and talk how the beak is used to get food. We compared the beaks to pliers, scissors, a straw, a nail and tweezers, and chopsticks. Look at the birds and ask me to tell you about the item we compared the beak to in our simulation.
We watched videos of the birds getting food and eating, and we want to share a couple with you.
And although this video does not show the eagle eating using his beak, I showed the children this video to show this amazing bird catching a fish.
