To get started, I'll share something that I've been doing with my kinders for the past couple weeks. I've been hooked on a live webcam of a bald eagle's nest in Decorah, Iowa. The webcam shows a mom and dad eagle and their 3 eggs that are going to hatch any day now! I decided it would be a great authentic learning opportunity for my students. The exciting part will come once the eaglets have hatched, but my kinders have been SO excited about watching it already. I'll be having my kids create an eagle journal to write their observations in each day, once we get back from spring break. Here's the link to the live webcam if you're interested!
Do any of you already watch this webcam with your students? If so, have you created any activities to accompany it? I'd love to hear your ideas!
