Classroom Ideas

First of all, listen to some birdsongs with your pupils. If you are fortunate enough to have a school in an area alive with birdsong, then use the natural sounds. However, you can just as easily use a CD or online recordings on birdsong. Decide which instruments can be used to create the various types of birdsong. Use a narrative (and narrator) similar to the one used in the script to provide a structure for your performance.
