We love looking at books about the topic we are studying. We read Secrets in Winter. It is so fun because it is a shine-a-light book. That means that you have hidden images!

They “come to light” when you shine a flashlight at the back of each page. We love it! Here are more shine-a-light books, in case you we interested.

We also read our mini encyclopedias on Birds and Bugs. Both books have information on what migration is. We read about migration for birds and bugs.

We learned of several kinds of birds and bugs that migrate and different kinds of migration. It was so interesting!

This is our setup. It was so simple and easy to put together. First, I printed the free printable set I made (you can have it, too) and taped the charts on the fence. I had my children cut the animal pictures and labels from the printables.

After reading our books, we glued the three topics (migration, hibernation and adaptation) on the top of the chart. We used our fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination to glue them in the correct spot all nice and straight.

What Animals Do in Winter

This was super fun. We decided to act out and sing the three things animals do in winter.

For migration, we pretended to be leaving while waving goodbye. “Animals who migrate go somewhere else during winter.” Emperor penguins migrate during the Winter, believe it or not!

For hibernation, we laid down on the ground and pretended to sleep. “Animals who hibernate stay where they live, but sleep for several months during winter.” Some cold blooded reptiles hibernate, too.

For adaptation, we were staying in place, but moving our bodies. “Animals who adapt stay where they live and have regular sleep cycles.” Animals like the red fox and deer grow a winter coat to keep them warm while they determine what their food source will be.

You have the answer key for this part in the printable, too. Let’s find out about animals that migrate in Winter! Monarch butterflies, Canadian geese and some bats leave their homes and migrate. Bears, chipmunks and skunks stay where they live to hibernate.

Use these hibernating animals pictures to teach your kids more about their living habits in Winter. I’m telling you, these cool pictures of animals that hibernate are the perfect introduction for the whole topic of hibernation. Hibernating animals survive by falling into a deep sleep and generate body heat to stay warm during the winter. They find food first and fill up to keep them without eating for months.

This printable shares a great starter list of animals that adapt in Winter. Rabbits, deer and mice stay where they live and adapt to the changing seasons. It is important to point out that you can see the rabbit and deer awake in the snow. They are adapting to their changing environment.

Glue the cards in the right spot.

We loved using these mini animal and insect replicas for the lesson. I used them to extend the lesson. We talked about how other animals survive in the Winter months by migrating, like whales and dragonflies. Others survive by hibernating, like prairie dogs and yet others by adapting, like moose and goats. We used several sets: North American animals, Ocean life creatures, Insects, etc.

All in all, this was a fun and educational lesson on how many animals behave during winter. This started a long discussion on the subject and they were so proud of their chart. They are both currently displaying them on our living room wall. Now it’s your turn!
