Follow That Bird! Teacher Resources
Welcome to Follow That Bird! A Science and Technology Unit on Tracking Birds. The goal of this inquiry-based unit is to teach core middle-school science concepts through student exploration of the tools used by Smithsonian scientists to track birds, the data they collect and how new information is used for conservation.
This project is one component of the larger Bird House exhibit coming to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in 2021 and represents a true collaborative effort between the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and Friends of the National Zoo.
