We would love to see and hear about projects the students are involved in as a result of watching the Decorah Eagle cam!

Always love to hear from parents and other educators that use nest cams for their students. Already seeing many classrooms and home schoolers that are using nest sites to add to their lesson plans.

My 2nd-3rd grade gifted class made a nest to see if they could all fit. Guess what? They could easily! They have been sharing it with other classrooms that are also watching the eagles.

dovemamma - What a great nest!  Kudos to you and your students for providing "lifesize" examples to learn better about eagles.  Thank you!

Here are some of the projects we complete every year.  The kids write up what they've learned about eagles all year and create a display in the hallway for all the kids in the school to see.  They measure to create "lifesize" recreations of the Decorah eagles, the nest, the wingspan, the eaglets and eggs at different stages.  Here are a few of the pics.

teachny123 - Love all of the projects you and your students are creating.  "Lifesize" really brings it home.  We are really enjoying your photos.  Thanks for sharing them with all of us in the forum.  Keep up the good work!

Thank you jfreeda and Kindergartners!  What a beautiful Bald Eagle Nest you have made!  We look forward to hearing about the "All About" book too.  Eagles eggs and Easter Eggs - Hmm.  Which one is bigger?  :)
