We used the TLC Lessons book Animals in Winter (there are 2 versions of this book). We used both. We talked about how animals, hibernate, migrate, and adapt to winter. We pretended to be bears. We stored up food for winter (popcorn). Then we hibernated through the winter and woke up in spring and filled our tummies with food again. We, also, pretended to be birds and fly south.
We used this poem in the pocket chart to talk about animal coverings. We also made a class book using pictures of students in their coats.
