Description of Activity

This activity makes bowerbirds and their bowers concrete by showing the children what they look like.

Watch the footage you have selected.

When you are done, gather in a circle and process the activity with questions such as:

  • I wonder how male bowerbirds select items for their bowers.
  • I wonder how the female bowerbirds decide which bowers they like best.
  • I wonder how the elephants learn to paint pictures? Where do they get their ideas?
