A great way to incorporate math into life science, this lesson plan has learners measure migratory routes on a map and calculate the actual distance that shorebirds on the routes would cover. Learners compute the distance covered in both miles and kilometers. A reading handout of background information is provided to precede the activity, as are maps of five different flyways. Use this lesson plan when teaching kids about animal migration or scale measurement.
