On January 23 & 24, 2020, students across the world joined together in a free online program as we built our skills for spotting birds!

What happened during this Special Live Event

In this 45-minute program, students built their skills for spotting birds. Through observations, students identified unique bird adaptations and behaviors in a variety of habitats and throughout different seasons

Students created bird field notebooks, modeled after journals from Academy scientists! In no time, students noticed birds and bird behaviors in their own backyards or schoolyard.

This program was chat box interactive! Students got to see and hear the Academy expert, and teachers will enter comments and questions into a text-based chat window.

Materials to Prepare for your Students

Teachers - Please prepare the following materials for each student so that they can practice spotting birds during the broadcast. 

Technology required

Students get to see and hear the Academy expert, and teachers will enter comments and questions into a text-based chat window.

To participate you must have the following technology available:

  • Desktop, laptop computer, or tablet
  • Strong internet connection; a wired connection is preferable
