Birds Korea is a conservation and research non-profit that collaborates with governments, non-governmental organizations, scientists and academic institutions within Korea and internationally. Andreas Kim, a long-time German expatriate member of Birds Korea and birding enthusiast in his own right, visited my classroom for a special English language presentation on the birds of Korea, birdwatching, and habitat conservation. The guest lecture also included a walking field trip down to our nearby marina where my 5th grade students were able to do some real birdwatching and document their scientific observations.
You can view the Korean language report of their birdwatching observations that my students wrote for the Birds Korea website here. Below you can watch a short video/slideshow of the highlights of Andreas Kim’s visit to Ansim Elementary.
