Hawaiian Studies Students Study Hawaiian and English Birds

Lizzie Griffiths is a Field Teacher for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. She came to Kumu Kauka's Hawaiian Studies class to share her knowledge of the birds found in her home country of Wales. In return, our students in grades 2, 4 & 5, shared their knowledge of Kaua'i birds, and asked her dozens of questions.

She gave them a scrapbook from students in Wales, and asked our students to make a scrapbook about Kaua'i for her to take back. The students will be working on that during the next few classes in Hawaiian Studies.

Lizzie Griffiths, from Wales, England, shares her knowledge of the birds in her area.
