What a better day to study eagles, our national symbol, than on our day to celebrate some of our American heroes. Thanks to our veterans of the U.S. military for promoting freedom around the globe.
We flapped our wings, played with feathers and used our eagle feet to pick up fish:
How do these bubble wrap gloves represent eagle feet? Well, bald eagles love to eat fish that are slimy and wiggly. One adaptation besides talons is that they have bumps on the bottom of their feet to that they can get a better grip on the fish and not drop their meal. We used these bumpy gloves to pick up our slippery soap fish.
It was a fun and active class. Toward the end we transformed ourselves into eagles.
