Abstract

This project created a lesson plan for middle school students to learn about birds and raise awareness about threats to natural ecosystems. Our team interviewed middle school teachers, conducted online research, and worked with Mass Audubon to construct a series of five lessons. These lessons cover evolution, interspecies relationships, bird identification, environmental ethics and challenges bird populations face, and are accompanied by an outdoor bird watching activity. To aid in the birdwatching lesson, we created a checklist and field guide of 50 common Central Massachusetts bird species.
