New! Chickadee Who’s Who: Bird ID Basics

Chickadee Who’s Who? Bird ID Basics) – for Grade 3 – 8. Using an interchangeable-parts  “Chickadee costume”, students will dress each other as a Black-capped, Mountain, Boreal, or Chestnut-backed Chickadee by changing the head-piece and / or tunic front and back of the costume. The changes will be subtle, so at each change, students will read about the habitat, habits and listen to vocalizations for that particular species of Chickadee – to associate the “look” of each bird to information which shows other ways of separating their identities. (Disciplinary Core Ideas MT Science Standards LS1.C, LS3.A, LS3.B, LS4.C LS1.A)
