About Ten by Ten

About Ten by Ten and Science

Finding wildlife is fun.

The Ten by Ten: Birds book challenges you to find ten groups of birds.

Can you meet this challenge? Only you can answer that question.

With games like Pokémon Go, you look for make-believe tokens. With Ten by Ten: Birds, you look for real wildlife: a crow, a pigeon or a robin.

You don't need an iPhone to do this. All you need is the Ten by Ten: Birds book.

When you find the ten groups, you can sign onto this website to list your achievement, get a badge and certificate and comment on your experience.

You are also taking the first steps in becoming a scientist.

Other books in the series like Ten by Ten: Trees and Ten by Ten: Insects will add more challenges.

Again, can you meet these challenges? We bet you can.

So get started!
