Living in SoCal, I am blessed with the familiar buzzing and quiet chirp of a hummingbird zipping through my garden almost daily.  Their busy little bodies going from flower to flower outside our dining room window excites my whole family as we watch all of nature's beauty unfold right on the other side of the glass.  But step outside, and we've now entered their territory.  Normally, we share the space with mutual respect.  But every once in a while, a hummingbird will zip by our heads with their intimidatingly-pointed beaks as if they were dive-bombing an enemy!  Ok, little hummingbird, we get it!  Back inside we go to the safety of our glass window!

Seriously, though, there is no better way to observe and learn about creation than to watch it unfold before you daily as you go through life, but it takes a little intentionality and willingness to open your eyes to the beauty all around you.

This is week 2 of the Bird Unit Study.  (If you missed week 1, it's right here.) We will work on drawing a hummingbird in the Drawing Class.  It's super fun if you have some gel-pens handy because they will add a little sparkle and shine to the fancy iridescent feathers of your hummingbird.  But whatever colors and materials you have on hand will be great.  Access the tutorial here.

Once you've drawn a hummingbird, why not expand on the concept?

Getting outside is one of the best ways to learn.  So why not go bird watching?!  Start a bird journal of all the different birds you see around your area. 


You can find a printable for this journal and more in the free lesson plan pack below.  In fact, I've created a whole lesson plan that incorporates multiple subjects into bite-size activities, plus all the worksheets and resources to go with them!  Just head to the library for a few supplemental books, and you'll be good to go!  Adjust each activity to meet the needs of your students!  And all for FREE!
