and compass activities.
Predict winter migration paths and
locations. Make predictions about the
location and timing of spring nesting.
Identify land and water landmarks.
Follow the egrets around the world and compare and
contrast where they go (look at climate zones, wind patterns,
and what these areas have in common).
Develop a story of what the bird sees and
experiences over a certain time period (given
certain ecosystem information, etc.). Why does the
bird make certain decisions?
Create a story from the bird’s perspective about its
life/travels/and what it sees.
Use the information from Movebank and
ecosystem/geography knowledge to write
children’s books or novels.
