Without a doubt, birds are nature’s architects!

Eagles enlarge their nests every year, making this nest the largest  of any North American bird.  Laura told us that an eagle’s nest is big enough to hold three brave teachers! The record nest measured 20 feet deep, 10 feet wide and weighed two tons!

Grade Twos learned the important elements used in nest-building: strong structure, a soft cushion for eggs, sturdy perches and the importance of mud to hold it together.  At Eldon Park students worked in groups to build their own nests.  One group thoughtfully added a baby toy!
