Students Use New Science Lab to Discover Birds

Third graders have been studying the purpose of different animal body parts and how those parts help animals survive. Birds all have beaks but why are the beaks different shapes? To find the answers, Ms. Tropf’s classes visited the new science lab and conducted experiments using everyday items like pliers, strainers, skewers, and many more, to eat like a bird would. Students were able to discover that birds have to have the right kind of beak to eat the food that they do or they wouldn’t survive. Great work and discovery everyone!
