*These educational materials are part of the Illinois Birds education kit developed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The full kit contains a wealth of information to help educators present Illinois-specific information to students in grades 3-6, including full-color posters, a closed-captioned videotape, an audiotape and variety of large scale activities. Each public and private school registered with the Illinois State Board of Education was provided a copy of the Illinois Birds education kit in 1993. Please check with your school administrator, librarian, media center specialist or science department chair to locate the full education kit.
