Birds' Nests: Marvels of Architecture and Design

This resource pack, aimed at primary learners, links to the topic areas of properties of materials, adaptation and life processes by looking at birds and the nests they build.

An introductory presentation looks at the reasons why birds build nests, different types of nests, where they are found and the properties of the materials used to build nests. Activity ideas and worksheets contained in the teachers' notes further explore birds' nests. There are activities on labelling the body parts of a bird, comparing different species, observing birds and recording species in the local area. It also looks at ways of caring for birds in their natural environment.
