Birds and Feathers Investigation

Birds and Feathers Investigation

My Preps have been collecting feathers for a while now.  They will love this investigation area.

There are magnifying glasses to encourage "looking closely" and ink drawings of feathers pinned up near our bird nest.

I love this hessian tree from ZART Art.

The limbs are wired and easily bent to hold and support the bird nest I found in our garden.

The little basket holds some Montessori Bird and Egg cards. The feathers here are very long and I am hoping it encourages some talk about measuring and length.

I try to incorporate sensory items into every area so I added some little wooden egg rattles.

Hopefully the Australian Birds book will encourage some bird watching at outdoor play time.

I might add some binoculars in a few days.

That ostrich feather is so soft.

I always include clipboards in my investigation areas. They encourage writing and recording of all the Preps discoveries.

This area was intentionally designed as a cosy space for 3 children. Small investigation areas keep the noise to a minimum. Well that's the plan anyway!
