Hibernating Animals Lesson Plans! We love teaching about animals in winter.
We start with some great books! Here is a list for you!
Bear Snores On I love these sweet books!
Not included in the image above Over and Under the Snow! So So SO good!
We read Bear Snores On as part of our Guiding Readers Series. The series also includes an informational text, so we did a little fact collecting!
We used this chart to guide ourselves with informational writing (sorry… no picture #fail).
As usual, we did a little retelling!
This is what the student version looks like!
Students also worked on making predictions!
Here is an oldie but goodie craft we do during this unit of study! To make it, you just cut a paper plate in half (and cut out the middle). Then you cover it with fake snow (the stuff you get at craft stores).
Centers and Stations
Here are some of the activities from my Math Work Station unit on nocturnal and hibernating animals.
Students sort the cards. This is a great group activity too!
Learning about the teen numbers!
A fun color by numbers page. We use equation dice so students are still being challenged.
I love this clip art by Kari Bolt! Students are making 10 in this book.
This is a fun subitizing game.
