I. NATURE TALES
There’s nothing more powerful than storytelling to connect us and make sense of our world. Introduce our topic with our read-aloud, Hummingbird by Nicola Davies, and related discussion. This picture book follows the migration of a little hummingbird and the people it meets along the way.
Enrich your understanding as we begin to explore what hummingbirds look like, their anatomy, the science behind why hummingbirds ‘shimmer’, feather anatomy, and life cycle with our illustrated lesson guides, vintage posters, and a variety of activities.
Bring out your ‘looking glass’ and delve deeper into hummingbird flight adaptations as we learn why hummingbirds are ‘all heart’, ‘big brained’, and the mechanics behind their famous hover with our STEM investigations.
IV. POETRY & ARTS
Enjoy a related poetry study (with copywork), art study, and music study.
Celebrate everything we’ve learned with a fun Flower Petal Hummingbird Suncatcher and Flower Cookies recipe.
VI. ON THE TRAIL
These nature study activities will take you outside as you learn why hummingbirds drink nectar, make your own mason jar feeder, and record your hummingbird sightings in your new Birds Nature Journal.
