Identifying Birds -

I struggled with this assignment; I am unfamiliar with developing lesson plans for a young audience, so I took Dr. Lamb's suggestion of creating a learning space for a general audience. I chose to focus on birding, or bird watching. I consulted a website that I have used both at the reference desk and at home -- All About Birds. Created and maintained by Cornell University's Lab of Ornithology, the website is accessible for all age groups. There is an extensive section for educators. Once I decided on the topics I wanted to focus on, I used Dr. Lamb's writing pad template and developed Power Point starters.

Both Power Point presentations share a similar order: the first slide is the template, the second slide has the text and web resources, and the third slide is a completed example.
