Storks Lapbook Information

Here are some sample lessons from the Storks Lapbook:

Classification: Birds are grouped into different orders, families, and species according to the characteristics of their bills, feet and wings. Storks are classified in the following way:

  • Kingdom: Animal
  • Phylum: Chordata (having backbones)
  • Class: Aves (meaning bird)
  • Order: Ciconiiformes (long –necked, long-legged waders including herons, bitterns, ibises, spoonbills, flamingoes)
  • Family: Ciconiidae (storks)
  • Genus: Ciconia (white stork, black stork, wood stork, etc.)

Stork Plumage: Birds have feathers that are designed for different functions.  To keep a stork warm and protect it from the elements, it has Downy feathers that are against the bird’s body, Coverts, which are the small feathers overlying the bases of tail and flight feathers, and Scapulars, which protect the shoulder regions. The stork also has lightweight, strong and flexible feathers designed for flight, the Primaries, which are the principle flight feathers, and the Secondaries, which extend to the wing tips. A stork also has tail feathers, which help it to slow down, steer, and balance itself.

Stork Diets: Storks are predatory carnivorous animals, meaning they eat meat, and will pretty much eat anything they can get in their bills. They will move their open bill around in water until it feels its prey, and then will snap their bill shut quickly. They will consume a wide variety of prey items including insects, frogs, toads, tadpoles, turtles, fish, rodents, small alligators, snakes, lizards, earthworms, mollusks, crustaceans, and, on occasion, the chicks or eggs of ground-nesting birds.
