November Visit From Mrs. Hugo

November 20, 2017 - 6:56am -- mpattis

Mrs. Hugo taught my students about habitats this month. She held a presentation, and then we took a walk around our school to determine various habitats near us. Afterwards, she passed our an aerial map of our school so students had a visual of the habitats. She even gave them an assignment over Thanksgiving break to draw a map of habitats around their homes. It was another awesome lesson!

September Visit with Mrs. Hugo

September 23, 2017 - 8:53am -- mpattis

This past week we had our first visit from Mrs. Hugo. Here are some things my students learned from her:

I learned about birds and one thing I learned was eagles almost went extinct. She showed us bird sounds on her phone. She showed us a slideshow about  all types of birds. Amarra

Mrs. Hugo came yesterday to teach us about birds. First, she put on a slide show about birds for us to watch. Then, Mrs. Hugo told the class that eagles almost went extinct. Last, she put bird sounds on her phone. Lily

When Mrs. Hugo came in we got to learn about birds. One cool thing about one bird is that the vulture can smell really well. Mrs.Hugo told us she saw a video about vultures that a guy put a piece of gross meat on the ground in the rainforest and waited for the vulture to come. It took the vulture only an hour and something minutes to find it. Also, my favorite bird was the hummingbird. Kinley

I learned that bids have special songs to communicate to other birds.Birds are very important to the environment because they drop the seeds to make new plants. Birds have beautiful feathers and colors to attract the female bird. Natalie   The first thing I learned was that there are 409 types of birds in the state of Idaho. The next thing I learned was there are over 900 types of birds in the United States of America. Then, Bald Eagles were almost extinct from a spray called DDT. Last, I learned that flamingos have really skinny legs.  That is what I learned with Mrs.Hugo. Scarlet

 

As you can see, we learned a lot in a very short amount of time! Mrs. Hugo is awesome!

 

 

 

 

Carrie Hugo's last visit.

January 29, 2017 - 5:32pm -- mpattis

Mrs. Hugo was in last week for her January visit. She taught my students about the adaptation of birds beaks. After watching a movie on the different types of bill, the students were divided up into rotations. Each rotation had "bird food" and examples of "bird beaks." The kids experimented with which beak was best for which type of food. For example, which of the following "beaks" (straw, tweezers, or salad tongs) be best to eat gummy worms in oatmeal? They had a blast and hopefully learned a lot!

Visit from Carrie Hugo

Last Wednesday we had our second presentation from Carrie Hugo. She shared a slide show on bird migration. It was so interesting!  The students  get so excited and have so many questions! I love seeing and hearing them get so enthused about birding.
