Birds Are Descendants of Dinosaurs.
Birds are the only living creatures with feathers. But they aren’t the only animal to have ever had feathers. From the fossil record we know that birds evolved from dinosaurs, some of which had feathers! But those first feathers had nothing to do with flight. Instead, they probably helped dinosaurs show off, hide, or stay warm.
As we stay home, it is a great time for birding from your window!
We prepared these entertaining exercises and games for you:
Sketch one of the birds you saw
Now Grab a piece of paper and crayons/markers.
Have one person think of a bird and de-scribe it in detail without saying the name of the bird. As the person describes the bird, everyone else is challenged to draw and color it based on the description. Once everyone is finished, compare drawings. Do any of the pictures look like the bird being described?
