As part of the Gifted Global Green Program conducted through Tinaroo Environmental Education Centre, our team has been researching different species of birds at Walkamin State School.
Through our project titled, “Home Tweet Home”, we hope to encourage our school peers, and staff to identify bird species in the school grounds.
Our team observed that many students could not identify the bird on our school logo. It is the Azure Kingfisher. This made us think about the need to educate our students on bird life.
This project is important because if you know the names of birds you think about them more and care for them more.
So far we have researched birds, conducted surveys, counted bird sightings, created art work, presented on parade and created a video presentation.
My team still needs to do another survey to discover how much knowledge students have gained about birds and whether our project has been successful.
This project and the Gifted Global Green Program have helped us learn about bird identification, how to use iMovie, and how to properly send emails.
The most satisfying part of our project has been getting the classes to listen and look at birds.
The most fun part of our project has been running around creating the video clips and dressing up as cockatoos.
We look forward to presenting our results to all the other Tableland schools involved in the program at the end of November this year.
