In this activity, learners play bingo to learn about the diversity of birds. This game includes a warm-up lesson and "Full Flight" version. In the first game (Warm Up), learners match bird features (e.g. long legs for wading) to different species including the blackfooted penguin, snowy plover, and killdeer. Learners who get three matches in a row win the game. In the second game (Full Flight), learners match clues about bird behaviors and anatomy to the different species. Although this activity can be conducted at an aquarium, this game can be adapted for home or class use. [Activity is publicly available through a web crawler capture on]
