This activity brings home the concept of how far and how arduous this annual migration is for birds. It is a role play activity of sorts where the participants are specific bird species that must leave their breeding ground get to their wintering ground and return again. The activity sets a course which has many of the challenges that birds actually face while migrating. It is an experiential way for participants to understand migration, its natural and man-made hazards and the risks for birds to survive.
This resource supports science outcomes related to animal behavioural adaptations, animal life cycles and interactions in ecosystems. The activity also involves students in considering how habitat loss can contribute to declines and extinctions of wildlife.
