Show 1201 Animals- Vertebrates - Birds
Our first category of living things is animals with a backbone or vertebrates.    This is the one thing they have in common and their other characteristics can be very different. We start out with birds. These are warm blooded animals.  No matter what the temperature outside, their body temperature stays the same and they have feathers to help keep them warm. They vary in size from the tiny hummingbird to a huge ostrich. Birds have 2 legs and 2 wings. They also have a beak and no teeth. Birds are hatched from eggs.   Many birds can fly but not all flying animals are birds and there are even some birds that can’t fly. Our first project is a colorful, paper toucan mask.  Next, is a beautiful watercolor bird mobile featuring commonly seen birds. Last, create a clay birds nest filled with different types of eggs.
