Birds are everywhere but what do they do and why are they important to our planet? Explore how they help pollinate plants and disperse seeds or recycle nutrients when they scavenge and poke around! Discover all you need to know about our feathered friends and their place in our world through experiments, investigations and hands-on tasks.
This series takes a cross-disciplinary approach, including links to culture, history, arts and crafts, as well as the science behind each topic. Each spread encourages children to engage with the natural world through exploration, creativity and investigation.
