Rocky Point Bird Observatory offers classroom-based programs for Grades K – 7. These curriculum-linked programs connect science with local biodiversity as we bring dry specimens and replicas right into your classroom to offer hands-on learning experiences for students. All programs include an outdoor component on school grounds to further connect students with their local environment and foster a sense of curiosity of the natural world.
Breeding Birds Level 1: Biodiversity of Local Breeding Birds (K - 3)
Read a story about birds, celebrate the local biodiversity of bird eggs and nests, and go outside to learn about the habitat requirements of local breeding birds.
Breeding Birds Level 2: Biology of Local Breeding Birds (4 - 7)
Learn about bird anatomy through examinations of real skull and wing specimens, and go outside to learn more about bird identification and citizen science projects involving birds.
All programs are by donation ($50-$100) and are approximately 1.5-2 hours long.
