There are lots of creative ways to build bird feeders in the classroom using everything from clay to milk cartons. This is an excellent way to engage the students in the process and great fun to watch the birds feeding from their creations. However, just bear in mind these feeders are temporary and the school also needs a permanent bird feeding station that will withstand Irish weather. It is important that the upkeep of this station is given to a specific classroom. You can purchase all the resources you need from our partner Quickcrop here.
