Feathered Friends: 4th Grade Expectations

Q: Will 4th graders need to know things like behavior, food, habitat etc for the 4th grade bird list only, or also for the common bird list?

A: Students should learn natural history topics such as behavior, diet, and habitat for both the Common Bird List and their grade list. This means a 4th grader would not be expected to know these natural history topics for the 2nd or 3rd grade bird lists.
