Lesson Summary: This lesson is specifically designed with rainforest birds in mind. After an introduction of birds, various beak shapes, and preferred food, an adult leader demonstrates how one of our model bird beaks would (or would not) work for the model bird food on their plate. As a large group, students discuss the difference in difference in beaks and predict their function. Students then "become" different birds, using different "beaks" to try to pick up various rainforest "foods". They would then theorize why beaks were formed as they were for that animal and why that is significant. Students can design their own bird with a unique beak and would then justify what it would eat and how. This lesson includes some very fun and silly bird costumes for kids and adults to wear! Ideal for students 1st-2nd grade, can be adapted to include 3rd grade. Suggested pre-work: review biomes, explore photos or videos of tropical rainforests, bird life cycle, define migration.
