Birds, Binoculars and Biology will use the activity of bird watching, or "Birding" to teach beginning Ornithology concepts. Birds will be the focal point of this course's teachings. Birds role in the ecology of Earth's biosphere and ongoing interactions with humankind will be examined. Birding provides many excellent authentic learning opportunities.
The Biology component of this instruction is aligned with Grade 6 Next Generation Science Standards and Grade 6 Common Core standards. Although "Birds, Binos and Bio." is designed to align with for 6th grade student standards it should prove enjoyable and informative to learners of all ages. Birds have influenced civilizations throughout human history. They are found on all 7 continents. The accessibility of bird watching-and the nearly universal appeal of birds- make them the perfect subject for ecological studies.

Students will learn about current immigration policy and the impact immigrants play in society and economy.
