One of the best ways to learn is to play. We have a collection of activities that let you learn biology by playing. You can try a biology experiment or test your knowledge with one of the biology puzzles based on our stories. There are printable and online coloring pages and work sheets that you can use to practice your coloring skills.

Wait, there's more. The Bird Finder tool can help you indentify that mystery bird in your backyard. You can also venture into Body Depot where you can learn about your body and the biology that keeps it going. With so many activities you might find it hard to choose, so don't. You can try them all.

Puzzles

White-winged dove

For much of the desert southwest, the return of the White-winged Doves in late March is a signal that spring has arrived. Their low mournful song “Who-cooks-for-you?” can be heard in many habitats from desert arroyos to city parks. They will be with us all summer. Then suddenly in early September they disappear as they fly south to spend the winter in Mexico.

You can learn more about the White-winged Dove and other birds in our Bird Finder.
