Do you know how the Bald Eagle became the national symbol for the United States? We didn’t either. Which makes it a great project to share with your kids!
Some questions to get started:
- Why and When was the Bald Eagle chosen as the national symbol for the United States?
- Where do Bald Eagle’s usually live?
- What do they eat?
- How many Bald Eagles are left in the world?
You’ll be able to uncover so much information from there, the conversations about the beauty and power of eagles will be natural!
It’s also a great opportunity to start bird watching and learning about other species. There are really cool and inexpensive monoculars available that hold your smart phone to allow you to take great photos from far away.
