Science Ecology Lesson 4
To identify birds
Task 4: Identification of birds in the ecosystem Birds are members of our food chains too and some food chains may even have two birds in it. There are some very good links to identifying birds from their sounds.
There are also some excellent identification keys to help you know which bird you saw. All you have to do is sit in a quiet spot, relax for a while and watch the birds/ listen to their sounds. You can sketch if you like or make notes on colour/size and then use your identification key to identify it. This link will lead you to a website which has many of our common Irish garden birds and if you press play underneath the description you can hear the beautiful sound of that bird. So you get a picture, a description and the sound for each bird.
Your challenge today is to identify 5 birds in your ecosystem, with pictures/photographs if possible.
Moving to Secondary School: Subjects and Timetables
In this lesson today we are having a look at subjects and timetables. This is something you will need to become very familiar with for secondary school. A really good tip that I would have used in school was to colour code my timetable and my books and copies/folders. For example maths was red and I would mark all of my books and copies for maths with a red sticker so I could find them easily in my locker. Irish was green....etc etc. This worked so well and it made sure I had all of the books I needed in each of my classes. Have a look at some of the activities and see how you get on.
