Extra Parts for Birds

Birds - Extra Parts

Recommendations for 3 children

Discovering Birds works well for two children working together. Here are our minimum recommendations for three children, so all will have a good experience.

These recommendations assume that the children can share a little, but won't want to wait too long.

For 3 children working at the same time, add:

     1 set of feathers

     1 bottle of black paint

     1 set of straws and balloons

     1 set of bird gliders

Recommendations for using these kits with larger groups.

Once you have one of our kits, you may find it's so much fun you'll want to use some of the lessons with more children.

Can extra parts be purchased for this purpose? Yes!

Use the Extra Parts for Magnetism (below) to order the parts for those lessons. The chart gives information on what you need for each lesson.
