Homeschool Nature Study Ornithology

Homeschool Nature Study: The Science of Ornithology

My kids have been taking a Homeschool Ornithology Class. They love it! The instructors have great ideas for a Nature Study on Birds. So, in today's Free Online Homeschool Lesson, I wanted to share some of the fabulous things they've done to learn about birds! Make sure you click on all the links for fun, educational videos, games, and free printables.

If you are in Indiana, discover the world of birds at the Eagle Creek Ornithology Center. Meet a Raptor every Wednesday and Friday at 4:00 p.m., and enjoy special bird programs Saturdays at 2:00 p.m.

These lessons are meant to be done over the course of week. If you choose to do a science block, you can complete the projects in one day.

Homeschool Nature Study Ornithology
Can you name this juvenile bird?

Homeschool Nature Study: Ornithology

Define Ornithology: The study of birds, including their behavior, natural history, physiology, ecology, and identification. Can you answer these bird vocabulary questions.

Grab your Journal. Run to a window or go outside on a hike. List 10 birds in your yard or neighborhood. Describe the birds. This free printable is perfect for your bird journal.

For example: 
Small, Red bird with orange beak. Tufted head. 
Seen year round = Cardinal.

If you don't know what type of bird it is, make sure you have a detailed description for your search. If you have access to a camera, snap a photo. If not, draw a simple sketch. It doesn't have to be a work of art. Just good enough to help you remember details about the birds camouflage, beak, size, habit, etc.

Do you know what makes a bird a bird? Is a Platypus a bird? Is a bee a bird? Is an airplane a bird? Is a penguin a bird? Think about why or why not? Then, watch this video.





The Cat in the Hat also knows a lot about that.
Learn to draw: Trace a Bird Printable
(Recommended for ages 2-5 yrs. or everyone who is young at heart.)

Learn about different types of birds. When you click the link, you will see a series of bird videos that include:

Puffins, Eagles, Falcons, Snowy Owls, Snowy Egrets, Condors, Emperor Penguins, and more.

After watching the videos on all of the birds, list the raptors in your journal. What is a raptor? Visit Wordsmyth to find out.

Classify your birds with these Printable Flashcards.

Language Arts Component

Compare and Contrast. Write a paper with 5 paragraphs.
Remember to include a introductory paragraph (tell me what you are going to tell me), 3 detailed paragraphs in the middle (tell me), and a summary paragraph (tell me again).

Topic: Why isn't a Platypus a bird? Why is a Penguin a bird?

In the three middle paragraphs, give supporting details on each animal. You can write more than 3 supporting paragraphs if you need to, but don't forget your summary. Write this in a Google Doc. My kids send these docs to me. If you feel so inclined, I'd love to read yours. I may even publish them in an upcoming post! Send them to lora@theplayconnection.com. I'll send some feedback on your work.


Arts and Crafts Component

Build a Popsicle Stick Bird Feeder. This is a fun construction project. Use wood glue. School glue may break down when used outdoors.

How to make a Popsicle stick bird feeder.

How to Make a Bird Feeder from Popsicle Sticks

First, lay the ten sticks flat, placing glue on the connecting sides.
Then, stack the sticks in a perfect square in layers with glue on the connecting ends. Eight makes the perfect height. Next, cut four pieces of yarn about 2' long. String a piece of yarn under the second stick at each corner as shown. Pull all pieces of yarn evenly and tie a knot in the top. Let dry for 24 hours. After your feeder is dry, paste in some peanut butter and sprinkle in bird seed.

Science Lab Component

Try this Fun Science Experiment: How does a bird eat? How does the beak's shape factor in to the equation? Try this fun science experiment.

Graphic Organizer for Science Experiment

You will need the following utensils and supplies:
Eye dropper
Salad Thongs
Nutcracker
Large Serving Spoon
Tweezers

Bag Popcorn (Bugs)
Glass of Water (Nectar)
Raisins and Small Log with holes (Bugs in a Log) You can substitute a cardboard tube for this if necessary.

Click on the link above for the printable companion worksheet.

Start with a Bag of popcorn. Experiment with each utensil. Your goal is to get the popcorn into your mouth or the mouth of your partner using each utensil. Which works best. What type of bird might eat something like popcorn? What does each utensil represent? In other words, imagine a bird with a similar beak. Next, have your science partner toss you some popcorn and try to catch it with each utensil.

Place the raisins in the cardboard tube or log. Use the utensils to remove the raisins. Which works best? Remember, you are a bird. You cannot use your hands. Make a note of your findings on the graphic organizer.

Finally, try to "drink" water from the glass with each of the utensils. Which one allows you easiest access to the drink? Which one takes the longest? Would you get frustrated if you were really thirsty and had to drink water with a nutcracker?

Label the parts of a bird.

How to Get Pinterest Followers Fast for your Business or Personal Profile

How to Increase Pinterest Following

Are you looking to increase your Pinterest following? You know, for free, with no fake accounts, and no paying for "real" followers? This free printable PDF eBook shares how we increased our Pinterest following. Since the publication of this eBook, Pinterest has changed the way they do some things. So, let's be clear this is not a guarantee. However, the best way to increase your following on any social media platform is to use it diligently, daily, and truthfully.

What does that mean? Be yourself; don't look for shortcuts. It works, if you work it... just like anything else. Shortly after publication of this book, we stopped working it. In fact, now we only use Pinterest once or twice per week to share our most recent posts.

How to Get Pinterest Followers Fast for your Business or Personal Profile
How to increase your Pinterest following fast.

What happened? Our followers have stayed steady at around 186,500. We suffered some consequences for being an account with a large following. Many fake accounts followed us, as well as, those intending to use Pinterest actively. Every so often, Pinterest does a sweep and removes fake accounts and accounts that are not active. With each sweep, we suffer a great loss. Generally around 2500 followers. That's the bad news. The good news is the referral traffic to our website has not waned. Though, somewhat seasonal, Pinterest is always the number 1 referrer to this website. When we work it, the referral numbers dramatically increase.

We dare not say what those numbers are. We act as a social media managers and when others hear our numbers, they expect the same results. Perhaps, over time this would be possible. However, a new (er) Pinterest profile will not achieve the same results as this one. We have thousands of pins (maybe millions) out there in Pinterest land. They have a life of their own. We can help you get started. We can tell you how we did it. We can even get you set in the right direction.

Though a few things have changed, overall the information in this FREE eBook will work... if you work it. The main changes to note are highlighted below.


  • Use fewer hashtags. Pinterest prefers it if you only use your brand as a hashtag. For example, #kidscreativechaos. Since the pins are often shared across other social media, we still use hashtags with relevant keywords for the website, #freeonlinehomeschool.  So, it is up to you - choose what you think is best, but never use more than two.
  • Don't go crazy and pin the same pin to several boards at once. This is still true as printed in the book. However, Pinterest warns of repinning the same pin to many different boards. We suggest pinning to your main website board (you should have one front and center) and then a few days later, pick the most relevant board with a lot of followers to repin it.
  • In the book, we talk about following new accounts. In theory, this is a great idea that works. However, in practice this may come back to bite you in the hand. Be careful who you follow. Make sure they are legitimate, active accounts. The concept was to follow people with a  small following. Ideally, they will be more likely to notice you and follow back. Great concept. It only works if they are active users.
So, that's it! Are you ready to download your totally FREE PRINTABLE PDF of the best selling book, How to Get Pinterest Followers Fast? Go for it!

Dairy Free Non-GMO Milk Sign Me Up!

Dairy Free Milk Alternative Perfect for Milkshakes

Silk Cashew Milk is a Dairy free and Non-GMO milk alternative. We are a family with allergies. We aren't lactose intolerant (though my son tells everyone he is), but we are allergic to MILK. Rather than going dairy free, I often drink it anyway. I like it in my cereal. I like ice cream. I like yogurt. I would be content to live on dairy alone. I suffer or take an allergy pill. My son isn't so lucky. His allergic reactions require him to live completely dairy free. We have experimented with many dairy free milks including soy (we are allergic) and almond. We've never like the unsweetened versions... until now.

Silk Cashew Milk is a Dairy free and Non-GMO milk alternative.
Silk Cashew Milk is a Dairy free and Non-GMO milk alternative. 


When the box arrived at our doorstep, we were surprised to see both sweetened and unsweetened. We ran into the kitchen and tore open the sweetened Silk Cashew Milk.

The Mommy: "Mmm, that's pretty good! I don't know if I'd want it on my cereal though. It'd make it take like cashews."

The Brother: "It's different. I like cashews. I like Silk Almond Milk better, but this is okay."

The Sister: "I'm not trying it!"

The Brother: "It's good!"

The Mommy: "Try just a little sip."

The Sister: "There. I don't like it. See?"


Then, we got busy. We didn't eat cereal or drink milk for a few days.


The Mommy: "We need to try the Unsweetened Silk Cashew Milk."

The Sister: "Go right ahead, I'm not drinking it."

The Brother: "Sure, I'll try it."

The Mommy: "Wow! I like this better than the Sweetened Silk Milk!"

The Brother: "It is better! It still has a cashew-y after taste though. Hey, do we still have those cashews?"

The Sister: "I will never try it."

The Mommy: "This tastes more like real milk. It is creamy like milk. I would like this on my cereal. Yes, we still have cashews."

The Brother: "Yay! I love cashews."


So, you can see, everyone has a differing opinion. You should try it and decide for yourself. I have a little disclaimer. I'm struggling with some medical issues. This past year, I have acquired many food allergies that never existed in the past. I liked the Silk Unsweetened Cashew Milk so much that, against my instincts, I had two cups. Shortly after, I began sneezing, coughing, and tightening in the chest. This is similar to my milk allergy reaction. I don't seem to have a problem with Silk Almond Milk. I put a little on my cereal a few times per week. I would be concerned for anyone with a nut-allergy. Do I have one? The verdict is out, I will be tested next month. Pretty much I am allergic to everything. I just want to share my true experience with you. Surely, if you have a nut-allergy, you wouldn't attempt to drink a milk made from nuts.

On a more positive note, I would LOVE to have a milkshake made with this milk. Some homemade Silk Cashew Milk ice cream, chocolate syrup, cashews... and for me, maybe a Benadryl on the side.

Over at Kitchen Treaty, I found a recipe for this amazing vegan dairy free cashew milkshake. The recipe doesn't call for Silk Cashew Milk, but it would make it so much better! I'm not a health nut; I'd add some chocolate syrup too.


Dairy Free Vegan Cashew Milkshake Recipe
Dairy Free Cashew Milkshake at Kitchen Treaty.

I like this milk because it is dairy-free, non-gmo, no high fructose corn syrup, all those good things that make drinking it even more worth a little sneezing.

This is a great milk replacement option for vegans. It has twice the calcium as regular milk.

For those who like the facts:

25 calories per serving

Creamier than skim milk with fewer calories

Made with the special creaminess of cashews

0g saturated fat and cholesterol

50% more calcium than dairy milk2

Free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG

Verified by the Non-GMO Project's product verification program

No artificial colors, flavors or funny business


So, what are you waiting for? Try it. You might like it- especially if you like cashews!
