Living Things: The Bird Feed Investigation - Outdoor Science

Have you ever wondered what birds love to eat? This outdoor science investigation will look at exactly that and fits in perfectly with your living things, habitats, or animal’s topic. Your class will build their own bird feeder before making a different mix of bird treats to investigate which birds prefer which treats. They can then use this research to build bird feeders for your school grounds with the treats that the birds love the most.

This investigation is also great for your data-handling topic.
