Fill the Bill

Fill the Bill

Today, we investigated the Fill the Bill activity that I borrowed from Fish and Game. Kids got to use different tools that simulated bird bills to figure out which bill shapes are effective for which food types. We had a good time testing out the "bills!" After, we looked at an online site with different birds/bills: http://www.vtaide.com/png/bird-adaptations3.htm. Even before the website, the kids could think of lots of examples of birds with certain bill types. One young lady even named Purple Martins as birds that use a big, gaping mouth as their "tool" to catch flying insects!
