Today we are going to learn about a bird. Can you guess which one? I’ll give you some clues. 

1.It has big eyes. 2.It is a nocturnal animal. (which means they are active at night) 3. It has great listening ears. 4.It makes ‘hoot” sounds. Did you get it? YES, you are right! We will learn about Owls today.

Wait. Before we start, why don’t we listen to the story first. The story called “Owl babies” by Martin Waddell.  Okay now let’s get started!

Did you like the story? I think they are super cute!!

When I went for a walk the other day, I found a nice pinecone in the park. I picked it up and started looking at it. Hmmm… Does it look like an owl? Maybe? Then I started wondering if I could make an owl with a pinecone!  What do you think? Do you think we can make an owl with a pinecone? Let’s see how it goes….!!

You will need a pinecone, two googly eyes, some cotton balls, a pair of scissors, glue and some construction paper(yellow and brown)

First, cut out a triangle for the beak and circles as the background for the googly eyes using the yellow construction paper. Then cut out the wings into ovals using the brown construction paper. See the pictures below. Tear pieces of cotton from a cotton ball and stuff between the layers of the pinecone. At last, glue the eyes, beak and the wings onto a pinecone and let them dry.

What does your pinecone owl look like? Please send me a picture so we can share it with our friends:)

The letter O is for Owl.

Do you know of any other animals that start with the letter O? Can you find three animals? Let me know which animals you come up with! These are my three animals that start with the letter O. Do you know what they are?

I hope you enjoyed learning about owls today. Here are some extra resources for you!! Also don’t forget to choose a bird for your research!! Here are my two questions for your bird. What kind of nest do they make? What are their babies called? Have fun doing your research!!
