Winter Birding

This week Mrs. Coffman came to Grace Jordan to teach the 6th graders about bird watching in the winter.  She described the 15 most common birds that we might see during this season.  The students used identification techniques that they have learned this year to make predictions.  For example, they looked at the shape of the beak to determine what the bird might eat and use that information to guess if it was a finch, sparrow, woodpecker, or in another category.  The students were engaged and excited when they were able to correctly identify the pictures.  We continue to see lots of finches and sparrows at Grace Jordan but we are hopeful that we will get to see some of the interesting species that Mrs. Coffman shared with us.
