Hands On Crafts for Kids 12: Living Things (cc)

The focus of this series is "living things." We learn about animals and plants that share our environment while creating great projects, which have been divided into the same classifications used by scientists. With animals we look to see whether or not they have a backbone; then we look at other characteristics like Click for more

1. Animals - Vertebrates: Birds (cc)

Our first category of living things is animals with a backbone or vertebrates. This is the one thing they have in common and their other characteristics can be very different. We start out with birds. These are warm-blooded animals. No matter what the temperature outside, their body temperature stays the same and they have feathers to help keep them warm. They vary in size from the tiny hummingbird to a huge ostrich. Birds have 2 legs and 2 wings. They also have a beak and no teeth. Birds are hatched from eggs. Many birds can fly, but not all flying animals are birds, and there are even some birds that can't fly. Our first project is a colorful, paper toucan mask. Next is a beautiful watercolor bird mobile featuring commonly seen birds. Last, we create a clay bird's nest filled with different types of eggs. 2010/CC Closed-Captioned PIA 30 min.
