This is an excellent activity for students to express their creative thoughts about adaptations in birds. Adaptations can be a hard concept for students to understand, but in birds it’s very easy to see the different styles of beaks and feet and how they perform a specific function. This activity would best be done after learning about the adaptations so they have confidence to design their own bird. A sheet is also attached with some suggested websites to assist this activity. This song teaches about the basic ecology and adaptations of birds of prey,all to a memorable sing-along tune.
