Schoolyards in your community may already provide habitat for common local birds. However, by improving the quality of that habitat, your schoolyard can attract additional birds and wildlife while providing a healthier, more interactive learning environment for students. By documenting bird sightings and observing the behavior of birds and other wildlife, students can increase their appreciation for the natural world. A diverse schoolyard habitat offers countless opportunities to enrich classroom curriculum--from developing literacy and writing skills through nature journals, to strengthening math skills by monitoring bird populations.
