  • Materials:

    • EEI: Building a Hummingbird Habitat: Visuals and Questions

    • Garden Catalog (attached to the Visuals and Questions)

    • Workbook Pages:  Our Hummingbird Habitat pgs 1-3

  • Background:

    • In this lesson you will be discovering what a hummingbird needs to survive and create a habitat that meets all for a hummingbird’s needs.  If you have the ability, you can include some of these into your own yard to attract hummingbirds. I would love to see anything you find or add to your yard.

  • Instructions:

    • Study the pictures on the “EEI: Building a Hummingbird Habitat: Visuals and Questions” page and discuss the questions with a family member or think about the answers on your own. You do not have to write the answers down.

    • Review the Garden Catalog attached to the Visuals and Questions to help you decide what you will be putting in your garden.  Not all the items in the catalog are needed in a hummingbird habitat. If you have a friend or a sibling in the 4th or 5th grade you want to complete this part with, you can; just make sure  you each complete and turn in the work.

    • Decide what you will put in your garden. On page 2 of your workbook list and explain why you are including it in your garden. 

    • Draw your garden and label to parts that help make it an ideal habitat for hummingbirds.

Unit test and optional hummingbird garden

  •  Complete the test to the best of your ability.   You can use any of the resources I have provided to you.  

  • Optional:  Add some features to your yard that would attract hummingbirds or take pictures of some features in your yard that meet the needs of hummingbirds and attach it to the test.  I would love to see what you find or do.
