King of the sky
Hello, this week we are continuing to think about the themes in the story King of the Sky. Today we would like you to think about the pigeons in the story.
1. Watch the video to find out about different types of pigeons. There is more to a pigeon than just being a grey, cooing bird! You can write notes if you like.
2. Use what you hear and see in the video along with the beautiful illustrations from the story and the pigeons you have seen in your garden or in the street to make a mind map of words to describe the birds. See the example one below.
3. After that if you are feeling creative you can put your ideas together to write a poem- maybe an acrostic Poem where each line starts with the letters of the word Pigeon or just your observations of the birds. See the examples below.
Definition of a pigeon:
The birds you're most likely to see while strolling around a city are pigeons. In the wild, they typically eat grains and seeds, but in towns and cities, you might see them eating discarded popcorn, French fries — just about anything dropped by careless pedestrians.
Pigeons have round bodies, short necks, and small beaks. These common birds are related to doves. Their feathers are mostly grey, but if you look closely at a pigeon you'll notice shades of green, blue, and white. Pigeon is French, from a Latin root, pipio, "young, chirping bird."
