School Project in 1ESO Science

Hi buddies!

This year's school project is "Diversity"

In our Science ambito we're going to work on the biodiversity of birds in the city of Madrid.

We are going to prepare a video of the most common species of birds in our surroundings.



Each group will elaborate a scientific file with the most relevant information about the assigned bird. This file will include some of this information and /or any other yu may find iinteresting:
  • Common name:
  • Scientific name:
  • Size: Body length and Wingspan
  • Feeding:
  • Distribution Map:
  • Habitat:
  • Sound:
  • Ecological Role:
  • Fun facts/ curiosities:
  • Pictures and drawings:
