Birds, Bugs, and Butterflies: Science Lessons for Your Outdoor Classroom

by: Steve Rich

Among the wild animals that may travel through a school yard, birds, bugs, and butterflies are the most common—the focus of most of the lessons in this chapter. It offers a variety of activities to allow you to “tame” the wildlife to help you teach. Instructions for each lesson are presented first to help you make the most of each handout. This free selection includes the Table of Contents, Introduction, Correlations to the National Science Education Standards, and the Index.
