RSPB's Big Schools' Birdwatch activities

8th January - 19th February 2024

If you're getting the children involved in the RSPB's Big Schools' Birdwatch this year, check out Busy Things for a lovely range of birdwatching activities! From labelling the parts of a bird to our fun Hungry chicks maths game, this event can definitely be cross-curricular.

Hungry chicks

Help chicken to feed her hungry chicks! Collect the worms and hop between the clouds to reach the nest. Be as fast as you can, collecting the correct number of worms before you go.

Great for number recognition and counting.
