This program is targeted to students in grades three through six. NOTE: At 16:11 minutes into the program, Mr. Meshach of the Wild Bird Sanctuary misspoke. This is the correct information he provided to us: “Birds have posterior and anterior air sacs. The posterior sacs are toward the tail, and these air sacs take in the first inhale.” During the live program, he said the anterior sacs take in the first inhale.
