Birdwatching in Eritrea
For Eritrean Schools & Children
We hope that this page will provide you with some ideas and information for your science or English lessons on the beautiful birds of Eritrea. There are two lesson activities below. The first is in English and is designed for Junior School students. The second is in Tigrinya and is designed for Elementary School Students. If you are lucky enough to have internet access at your school, you can use the page online. If not, you can always save it to disk or flash drive and then save it to the computers in your computer lab for the children to use there. Alternatively, print and copy it onto a poster!
