For our Q unit, we learned about birds. However, in addition to the general bird theme, we talked about Numbers 11:4-11, 31-34. So our themes (in addition to birds) were being thankful AND not grumbling/complaining. Here is our lapbook:
Back to the bird theme…we also made bird feeders using pinecones, peanut butter, and seeds. All of the kids got to participate in this one. However, we never did see any birds eat from the pinecones. Perhaps it was because the kids wanted to hang the bird feeders on the tree close to the side of the house. (The only way we could have seen any birds at the feeder is if we were outside…)
The highlight of our week with quails was making an edible bird nest. It was a HUGE hit with all the kids. Well, anything made with chocolate is a big hit in my house!!!
You can get instruction on making the nest here!
Finally, here are some of the bird themed books that we used:
Well, that was about it for our unit on quails!!!
