What you need:
- Paper plate, or paper and pencil to draw a plate
- Learning plate (not necessary) or flora
Children will practice presenting and arguing their case. Find out which berries, fruits and seeds are found in a local area.
Divide the children into groups of three or four.
How to do it
- Draw a plate or use a ready-made plate.
- Fill it with the birds’ favourite dish.
Give the children 15 minutes to find berries, seeds, fruit and more in the forest. Bring the finds to their plate and post what the group has found.
- Name the dish and argue why the birds like that particular dish.
Bonus is if the children can also figure out what is in front of them on their plate. Here it might be useful to have a learning board, or a flora with them, where the children can find out what plants they have found.
In the classroom, the children can then stick the dish on the plate and describe their dish and why it is the birds’ absolute favourite.
