Welcome to the "Here Birdy, Birdy" Kindergarten Telecollaborative Project
We are a mighty group of Kansas Kindergarten students who are looking to link up with four other classrooms in North America. Our mission is to discover how many birds we can feed in a school year's time, what color of birds visit our classrooms in each season, and how much birdseed is consumed. As a bonus, we'll learn about each other.
