The end of this month is fast approaching! There are so many great things that we can do in our classes, but with limited time, especially in the elementary classrooms, we have to choose intentionally.
If you are still deciding what to do, I’m sharing some options with you here. The list includes resources for elementary, middle and high school students! Some of the resources are on my blog and others are available on Teachers Pay Teachers.
Quetzals are found in the highlands of Guatemala and Mexico. For this activity, find a map where you can locate Guatemala and Mexico. You can also use Google Earth and find locations where this beautiful bird lives. What a great opportunity to review colors and describe the differences between the male and female bird (those differences being colors and feather length) – even a chance to touch on science and social studies, too. More information may be found HERE.
Here is a great video that you can share with your students:
To make the art and craft you will need: 1. Glue gun or craft glue 2. Green pompoms, different sizes 3. Pieces of red and yellow felt 4. Googly eyes

2. Add googly eyes and use the yellow felt for the beak. 3. Use the red felt for the front of the bird. 4. Glue the green feather.
