We watched the Eagle Huntress in class, talked about the Mongolian people and their traditions, then brought in a special guest for the kids to meet! We discussed the biology of the birds - their sharp eyes, their talons, intimidating stares - and why they need these adaptations, as well as how these adaptations make them the perfect national symbol for America, Mongolia, and Mexico. WOW! No better way to teach symbolism. We then had a Q&A for questions. Kids were on FIRE! Barrett the red tailed hawk was even more on FIRE. Cannot believe how perfect that went. Education & birds are two things that I am ridiculously passionate about, and I'm so glad to bring both into the classroom. The more people understand about a subject, the less likely the are to hate that subject.
