More about ‘Bridging the Americas’
As part of the program, the kids learned songs and wrote poems about the importance of the migrating birds.
Mike Nobel’s The Miracle of the Birds is one of the songs the children learned. One verse goes:
So welcome them with a shelter
Shelter them with your love
Give them a place where they can safely return
Celebrate the miracle of the birds
Students created acrostic poems. This one, by Sarah Naidich, is called Indigo Bunting.
Bluish white eggs
Up at daytime
Is the most spectacular bird in Virginia
