The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Pennington Adopt-a-School Program

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Pennington had a wonderful surprise for us Friday evening!  We received a package at our door and upon opening it, we learned that we were chosen as an Adopt-a-School Program where we can apply for a mini grant to help us Celebrate Birds!  They sent us 10 child sized binoculars, a bird feeder, seeds, and lots of information including lesson plans, coupons for Pennington products and an awesome way to make a bird feeder out of a 2 liter soda bottle!

Here are some sites to check out to look at the bird curriculum from grades K-12!

This is very near and dear to my husband.  It's been a little over a year since his grandmother passed away and bird watching is something they used to do together when he was little.  It really touched his heart that we were given such incredible resources that he can share that same love of birds he and his grandmother shared, with our sons.  We have three other families that homeschool at our church so we are going to invite them to the park with us so we can all learn together!  We are so incredibly thankful to The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Pennington for choosing our homeschool for this and we will keep you all posted with our scientific results!
