Teacher Notes
 You are the new
  zookeeper. The
  Baby Beebee Bird
  just came to your
  zoo. All of the
  other animals at
  the zoo can’t
  sleep because the
  Baby Beebee bird
  is too noisy at
  night time.
 As the new
  zookeeper, you will
  learn about the
  sleeping habits of
  different animals.
  You will also practice
  telling time, so you
  can help the Baby
  Beebee Bird learn
  about day and night.
 The Baby
  Beebee Bird
  children’s book

 A computer with

 Plastic clocks
