My grade 5/6 students loved making the birdhouses this year.  They were very easy to assemble and it was very satisfying for the kids to see that they could build something from wood that looked so good!

 

The kids painted them in camouflage colours and installed them at a bird sanctuary, fostering their role as environmental stewards.  They now notice birds more and have increased awareness of the ways that people can help to protect and preserve our natural environment. Burnaby Teacher
