We had so much fun with our famous activity on animals in Winter that gives us an overview of hibernation, adaptation and migration (with printable) what we wanted to expand on it some more and go more in-depth with our unit. Here, you will find printable hibernating animals pictures and so much more! There are 23 beautiful cards!
You can print them out and sort them, make a chart, research each animal that hibernates and why or simply print two copies in color (on cardstock) and then laminate them to play a memory (matching) game. Laminating the cards makes the cards more durable. You can also use dry erase markers or crayons to make notes on the back, write facts or practice tracing the animal’s name.
