Thinking/Shifting Perspective: Ask students to re-tell
the story from the hummingbird's point of view. They can tell it
verbally, in writing, or in drawings. Also have them give the hummingbird
a name based on what they know about him and his adventure.
Writing/Sequencing: Write "How to Band a Hummingbird"
on the board or chart paper. Ask students to make a list, in chronological
order, of things a bander does.
Think Critically: What other types of questions
might researchers be able to answer based on banding data? List
at least three.
months after she was released, Sweet Pea was found 2,100 miles away.
If she headed Northwest right away, how many miles did she average
per month? Per week?
