Our Bird Poster




We used DK Animal for the bird classification, I created the little rounded boxes of information for each order. These are able to be flipped up to reveal more information underneath, which we haven't done yet. In the blue on the left bottom is comparisons of different feet and beaks and their uses. We're only halfway done with our bird study, but it has been a lot of fun. We may be making our own posters from now on, it was so educational to do it this way.

That looks really great! Would you mind sharing where you find the cool clip art? Did you copy them from the DK book?

Looks like a lot of work from Mom! Very dedicated. We made a bird book last year when we did birds. Einstein felt so proud to see his own work in a book.

I'll be eager to see the flip up work Camille does. what a cool idea!
