Learning with an eagle eye
Wednesday, May 11, 2016
English as a Second Language classes at Liberty School have been observing the live eagle cam in Washington D.C. for the past several weeks.
A pair of mated bald eagles are nesting high in a tulip poplar tree amongst the Azalea Collection at the U.S. National Arboretum. They can be seen at dceaglecam.org.
"They've done research using resources such as non-fiction texts, the encyclopedia, and the Internet," teacher Shelley McGowan said. "These students have attentively researched and have enjoyed writing about these amazing creatures."
