What Birds Are Flying Around Your Schoolyard?

Students conduct a long-term census for the birds that are seen or heard around their schoolyard. They practice identifying birds using field guides and then count and record the birds in fifteen minute sessions every other day for four weeks. In a final report they categorize the habitat and graph the results.

I am actually not a teacher, yet. I am a college student on my way to becoming a high school math teacher. Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver on several occasions. I have used it for everything from learning how to word a lesson plan to using a lesson plan I found on the site to teach a mini-lesson. I use it quite a bit now so I know it will be invaluable in my teaching career. It is great as it is and so easy to navigate.
