Eat Like a Bird is the January lesson of a series of 10 monthly Feathered Friends lessons created by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Pennington Wild Birds. The lesson focuses on bird beak forms and the type of food each bird has evolved to eat. Students brainstorm foods they know that birds eat and observe birds feeding in their area to make connections between structure and function before conducting an investigation about the relationship between them. The January activities can be found on pp. 24-28, but each month's lesson has NGSS-aligned activities that are specified in the introductory pages of the document.
