There are many ways to teach, and many ways to learn. One of the best ways is to learn by doing. This fun publication from the California 4-H program provides an outline so that youth can learn about birds through experiential learning.
Introduction to Poultry provides outlines for learning opportunities for youth who do not own birds themselves as well as materials that can be used with youth who do. Concepts covered in the five sessions include learning how to identify wild and domestic birds, exploring eggs, and understanding numerous human-poultry connections. Each session is designed to encourage participants to think about what they already know about a topic, test their thinking through various investigations, and apply what they have learned.
