Fun Lesson Activity about The Hawk
Objective: This lesson is to teach students about the exceptional eyesight of hawks.
Materials: Picture of the hawk for students. A piece of paper with a picture of a mouse and a name for the mouse (font size 32).
Instructions: This lesson would be best done outside. Begin by teaching students that a hawk is a bird of prey. Explain that some birds eat berries, plants, and nuts but other birds (birds of prey) each other animals. Explain that they are predators and eat other smaller animals. Then explain that birds-of-prey need to have incredible eyesight to be able to see their prey on the ground when they are flying very high in the air. Tell the students that hawk’s eyes have approximately 1 million photoreceptors per mm2 while humans only have 200,000 (hawks have 5 times that of humans). Go outside with the students and have one student hold the picture of the mouse. Have a student walk backwards from the mouse until they cannot read the name anymore. Then have another student take the picture of the hawk and walk 5 times that distance from the mouse to illustrate that hawks can see the name of the mouse from that distance. Bring the whole class back to where the hawk is so the students see how accurate a hawk’s sight is.
