Imagine Life as a Bird Activity

Ask participants to imagine they are a bird—any bird. They can even close their eyes and use their imagination:

What are you doing?
Where do you live?
What do you see?

Now focus more on habitat needs. Ask:

What do you eat?
Where do you find food?
How do you eat?
Where do you get water?
Where do you sleep?
Where do you lay your eggs?
Where would you hide if something scared you?

After plenty of imagination time, have the participants draw their imaginary adventure in their nature journals and then share ideas as a group.
