Ornithology is a branch of zoology (the study of animals) which specializes in the bird species. The word ornithology is a Latin word which means “bird science.” A scientist that specializes in the study of birds is called an ornithologist.
Humans began studying animals as far back as Adam and Eve. It was necessary to identify which animals were able to be used for food or be domesticated. Today, ornithologists study approximately 18,000 different species of birds!
This workbook will include science, geography, history, language arts, and creative arts all in one! If you are using the book for school, work on one page a day, or as many as you want to fit into your curriculum. The vocabulary words are located at the beginning so you will understand the terms when you research each state bird.
This is a workbook purposed to develop research skills. Think of all the different ways to research the bird species. Use a dictionary in book form to look up and learn the vocabulary words. Have your parent help with any searches on the Internet or schedule a library day to research the information. Choose your favorite reading spot, such as a beanbag chair, comfy desk, or under your favorite oak tree. Be sure to have colored pencils, pens, or markers ready to doodle and practice your art skills!
