These things we’ll find out.

As we go adventuring about.

If you want to know

Come along where we go.

III. The main part .

Teacher:  At home you have prepared interesting information about some birds. Tell to Posnayko interesting facts from birds’ life.

(Учні розповідають про птахів, а на екрані зявляються зображення птахів)

  Pupil1: Sparrows can eat almost anything. They like the city streets and yards best. Sparrows do not fly away when winter comes. They can live in very cold weather.

     Pupil 2:  Starlings fly away to warm places before winter comes. They often come back to the same home year after year. They like to make their nests in boxes or bird houses. Starlings live on insects which they find on the ground or in trees. Starlings are not afraid to fight bigger birds if they have to protect their young.

      Pupil 3:  Gulls are great flyers. Gulls are at home on the water. They sometimes sleep on the water. Gulls are great eaters. They keep our lakes and oceans clean. They often follow boats and ships and eat things that are thrown into the water.

      Pupil 4: The swallow is one of the national symbols of Ukraine. It is good if swallows build their nest on the house. It is for love and happiness in the family.

     Pupil 5: Swallows usually come to us in April. And in summer they often have nestlings. Parents bring food to their kids up to 400 times a day! Swallows eat flies, mosquitoes, and other insects. In August or September swallows fly away to Africa. They spend their winter holidays there.          

  Pupil 6: A lot of birds like bright and shiny things. For example, magpies or crows. So, be careful. When these birds see keys, rings, or toys, they can take these things to their nests.

   Pupil 7: But most birds like tasty food. By the way, crows can imitate the voices of other animals. They can bark like dogs and miaow like cats.

       Pupil 8: Robins can often be seen in early spring. Robins like to live near people’s homes in the country. They get their food in the yards and gardens. Robins can hop very fast. Both Father Robin and Mother Robin build their nest. It is made of pieces of grass, small sticks and mud.  Both birds feed the hungry babies.

 Pupil 9: Robins live in North America, Europe, and North Africa. They can be grey or olive-colored with orange or red breasts. Robins lay blue eggs. Little robins can’t fly for two weeks. They get food from their parents. Robins are wonderful singers. A lot of people love to listen to their songs.

    Sing, robin, from the woodland tree.

       Sing, robin, sing a song for me.

             Each morning when it’s calm and still,

             You sit upon my window sill.


              I love your cheery melody,

     Sing, robin, sing a song for me.

             Each morning when it’s calm and still,
