You can access a great deal of information at this site for free, but they also offer the opportunity to register for $20/year, a fee that enables students to participate fully in the research project. (Details are at the site.) However, you don’t have to register to learn interesting facts about a variety of hummingbirds or to access the activities and lesson ideas in math, art, drama, music, geography, and writing.
When you get to the site you will see the introduction to “Hummingbird Math Activities” – just scroll down to review the lessons and click on the links to the other curriculum pages as well.Want more hummingbird fun? Have your children make their very own hummingbird feeder and try some interesting activities like:
