This is a fun activity to incorporate into your hibernation/winter unit. Students use their previous knowledge and/or learn about animals that hibernate by solving clues about each animal to find out what animal has chosen to hibernate in their classroom.
Students will discover facts about common hibernating animals. Similar to a treasure hunt, students follow clues throughout the school to find out that a bear is hibernating in the classroom. We build a bear den and had a stuffed bear inside as well as included bear tracks through our room.
