1st Grade Bird Traits Program

The 1st Grade Bird Traits Program consists of a 90-minute classroom program. During this classroom program, students will explore the concepts of inheritance and variation of traits through the world of birds. Can students match the baby bird to its parent? What traits do you use? Are there patterns to the types of baby birds? In some species of birds the males and females look the same, and some are different. When they are different, what traits do you use to know they are the same species? Students will also learn how parents help their offspring survive through migration and feeding behaviors.
