Spring is for the birds. This was a “following directions activity” as well as introducing idioms for the older students. I posted this quite a few years back. Originally, I put the birds up on a bulletin board I had in the hallway. Students from all grades would pass by and comment on it. I decided to update it since the directions were a digital book and the link no longer worked.
I converted the directions to a pdf. This allows you to present the directions to your students in different ways. You can get the pdf here.
My older students had a homework component. I made flyers with idioms printed on them and they either wrote or told me the meaning after researching it. Here is the flyer. Bird phrases.
This was the look of the bulletin board at the end. The birds are suppose to be sitting on wires.
