Bird Feeders!

Bird Feeders!

As part of our technology and inquiry unit, in room 16 we have identified that there is a problem - that there are no trees for the birds to live in and nest at Reremoana School. With the housing development happening across the road, the birds have begun to migrate over to our school... But there is no where for them to perch. 
We initially thought that trees would be the best solution, however trees are expensive and they take a long time to grow. We came to the solution that bird feeders would be a great way to encourage the wildlife into our school where they could perch and have a nibble of some seeds. 
Today we designed four different bird feeders that we could potentially make. 
We plan to make these bird feeders in week 10 to showcase these in week 11.

Please start to bring in any of the following if you have these lying around at home:
(Please do not go out and buy anything special)

- Drink bottles/Coke bottles
- Empty jars (plastic please)
- Old Cd's
- Toilet roll inners
- Wooden spoons
- Plastic spoons
- Chop sticks
- String
