Annie's Colorful Quest: Macaw Magic
a short story about tropical birds for elementary (gr 4) school students
Using her GPS, Annie continued her journey deeper into the forest. She spotted many other incredible creatures along the way—a sloth hanging lazily from a tree branch, a colorful poison dart frog hopping from leaf to leaf, and a troop of mischievous monkeys swinging through the trees.
After a long day of exploration, Annie found herself at a research station dedicated to studying macaws. The scientists there were friendly and eager to share their knowledge. They explained that the banded macaw Annie had seen was part of a conservation project.
