If you've not checked this out, find time to take a peek with your class. We have been studying organisms in science and over the weekend a friend sent me this link. It is a link to a Ustream video of an eagle family in Decorah, Iowa.  We have been checking in at school whenever we have a spare minute or two and have been able to see the mom actually feeding the eaglets- there are 2 hatched already with one more expected to hatch in the next day or two.  This kids are absolutely fascinated with it and it has been a great resource for our unit. We've talked about the life cycle of the eagle as well as the food chain.The nest is estimated to be 5-6 feet wide and 5-6 feet deep and weigh 1 1/2 tons! Wow!!!
Take a peek for yourself. It's fascinating to watch!
