Raptor Resource Project: Who’s Who? Identifying Character Traits

Students will use photos of Mom (a female eagle) and DM2 (a male eagle) to identify observable traits and use them to explain or justify how they know which eagle is Mom and which eagle is DM2.

This lesson will take 45 minutes of class time. This lesson would work very well with Compare and Contrast Male and Female Adult Bald Eagles.

The chat is moderated by Raptor Resource Project volunteers. Link: https://scitechinstitute.orgwww.raptorresource.org/classroom/.
