The Problem

We do not want the Michigan bird population to become endangered.

Our Plan

We are planning to make bird feeders and a bird bath for the birds. We already have bird houses. In the spring, we plan to plant flowers for them and make a garden for them.

The Benefit

  • term icon

Here is how the project went:

It was awesome! We painted clay pots and a clay saucer and we assembled them into a bird bath. We also made bird feeders from pine cones. We put natural peanut butter and assorted birdseed on them.

Through this project I/we learned:

It can take a month for birds to find bird feeders. You have to be patient as you wait for birds to come.

What I/we might change:

We would add flowers and make a garden. We hope the people at Lake Michigan Academy will do this in the spring.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

Our favorite part of this project was making the bird bath and painting it.

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

When making the bird feeders, make sure to use gloves.
