Get Inspired - Educators Shine Bright! 

Mrs. Kellye O'Neal's 3rd grade Science classes at Jessieville School District, used 4 different "Hummingbird beaks" to determine which design type would best allow them to meet their needs for food. The students were given 4 pipets to represent the beaks- one with tape on the end, one with a paper clip keeping it closed, one with holes punched on the top, and one was not altered.
