Eagle Cams

It's that time of year again where Eagle cameras are fascinating to watch! Eagles have laid their eggs and await their eaglets. Tuning in to animal cams is an incredible opportunity to learn about animals around us. 

In classrooms, consider making the eagle cams part of your classroom daily.
