The Kid Should See This

LET’S GO LIVE with Maddie and Greg, a live YouTube show for kids

To create some excellent educational entertainment for littles around the world, England-based science presenters Maddie Moate and Greg Foot have launched a half-hour LIVE YouTube show every weekday at 4am PT / 7am ET / 11am GMT on Moate’s YouTube channel: LET’S GO LIVE with Maddie and Greg. Those who can’t catch the show live, it will be posted to YouTube afterwards.

Their first week’s theme is all about Gardens, with bird spotting as the focus of their first episode, shared above.

Will birds show up on their live bird feeder cam? Maddie and Greg demonstrate how to identify birds with RSPB’s Online Bird Identifier, listen to bird sounds with Brett Westwoods Guide to Birdsong, and share how to make a DIY bird feeder with items from around the house: A recycled plastic bottle, scissors, string or twine, bird seed, and a wooden spoon, stick, or pencil.

If you build a birdfeeder, identify any birds in your back yard, park or from your window, or if you have questions for Maddie and Greg, you can email them. Or find them on social media: @MaddieMoate on Twitter and Instagram; @GregFoot on Twitter and Instagram.
