Animals in Winter Teaching Kit includes:
1. Poem, Peek-a-Boo, Why Don’t I See You – Animals in Winter.
This is a poem I wrote to help children understand how various animals cope during the winter. It introduces the concepts of hibernation, migration and adaptation.
2. T-Chart sorting worksheet - students colour, cut and paste various animals into corresponding groups: migrate, adapt, hibernate.
3. Fishing Rod Art - students decorate a fish template and create a fishing rod for a hungry bear.
4. Gone Fishing - assess students' understanding of numbers by having them number fish (1-10 for younger students, 1-30 for older students).
5. Winter Wonderland - students colour, cut, and paste various animals into the appropriate place in a winter wonderland scene.
6. Writing Template - create a classroom adaptation of the classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by having students contribute personalized pages. Students draw a picture of themselves engaged in a favourite winter time activity and then write a sentence about it.
7.Sleeping Bear - students use various craft items (i.e., tissue paper, cotton balls, construction paper, paper bags, twigs, popsicle sticks, etc.) to create a home for a sleepy bear.
8. Where is Baby Bear? - students colour, cut and order the bears according to size (exercise in visual discrimination).
9. Sorting Cards - students sort animals into various groups based on how they cope with winter (a great addition to the Science centre).
