Audubon: Just For Kids
Age Range: 6-12 (with parental supervision)
The National Audubon Society’s mission is “to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.” At their website, they offer a kids’ section filled with games and activities that teach children about birds and other animals.
When you get to the site you’ll see a selection of activities that include:
*Green Scene – Solve riddles that test your knowledge about ecology as it relates to air, health, water, energy, land, and wildlife.
*The Game Place – Play games that teach about bird species and their songs, as well as bird migration.
*Video & Live Cams – Enjoy live streaming from cameras trained on a Hummingbird nest and Barn Owl nest. Watch a variety of wildlife video clips that include a bat, bobcat, cougar, fox, hawk, and more!
*State Bird Department – Do you know the name of your state bird? Find out here!
When you’re through exploring the “Just For Kids” section of this site, use the menu at the top of the screen for more in-depth information on birds, conservation efforts, and more.
