“The air is crowded with birds – beautiful, tender, intelligent birds to whom life is a song”. – George Henry Lewes
The sight of a bird perching on the ground, suddenly starting to hop and then gliding up the air is an interesting sight for any child. Most of them are amazed to watch the aves flying high up in the sky. They are also wonderstruck to watch birds with different hues and colours, various sizes and shapes, having diverse kinds of beaks. They also love to watch the birds indulging in various activities like building nests, eating, feeding the young ones etc.
To learn more about the flying feathered creatures, students of KG I went to the garden wearing attractive and colourful wings to observe the birds. They learnt about different sounds made by them. Later they were shown videos to watch and listen to the actual sounds of chirping and singing of the birds.
The students also made different types of birds, using their creativity with the help of colourful clay dough. They also made eyes, beak and wings. The activity is a way to develop the students’ visual, inter-personal and intra-personal skills.
