  • Migration Matters

    Students play Migration Matters

    Migration Matters, or Migration Madness as it is sometimes called, is an exciting, outdoor game that gives the students a chance to become a migratory bird.  Each student becomes a specific species of bird and runs across a field or playground set-up to be a migratory flyway.  They honk and chirp and flap their wings to get safely to wetland habitat for food, water and a quick rest...and then are off again to try to reach their migration destination.
