Brown Pelicans: Articles and Activities
Students will read two articles about brown pelicans and discover how pelicans’ long bills, stretchy pouches, long necks, and strong wings all work together to create one interesting bird. They also learn how brown pelicans raise their young, what makes them different from white pelicans, and what brought them to the brink of extinction.
• Students will play a game of tag in which some of the students are pelicans and some are fish.
• Students will make a Venn diagram to compare and contrast brown and white pelicans.
