Cross-text Synthesis = Same topic, different angles

Since yesterday we started learning about birds of paradise, they are from the Pacific archipelagos. Due to evolution, they have become beautiful birds with distinctive beautiful feathers and interesting mating rituals.

We used two texts to learn so far:
1. BBC Documentary by David Attenborough (available on Netflix)
2. TED Ed video about Speciation

We learned that different texts offer different angle of study of the same topic. The BBC documentary offers the history of research on the birds of paradise while the TED Ed video talks about the science of speciation and how these birds got to evolve from a single species of bird.
