Taylor’s Birthday Present – Flying with the Cranes

Posted by Laurie Sullivan at 12/7/2008 2:00:00 PM

In the Discovery Lab this week we learned about Father Goose (see previous blog entry), we checked on the current migration of “our” whooping cranes, we made models of ultralights and whooping cranes flying in the sky, read books about migration, and watched a video clip of a journalist flying with the cranes.

We read the online story of Taylor’s 10th birthday present of flying with the whooping cranes! Afterwards each student put a photo of himself/herself in an ultralight glider and we went on a pretend migration around the school. I’d love to fly with the whooping cranes for real on my next birthday!
