Product Description
I have always loved Groundhog Day. It is my favorite holiday, by far. I think I just love that cute little Punxsutawney Phil. I also love it because it teaches about animals that hibernate. To help children, and students practice their hibernation facts, I created this fun Hibernation Toss and Sort Game.

Materials Needed

In order to create this game you will need the following items:

Hibernation Toss and Sort Fact Cards
Hibernation Toss and Sort Category Cards
2 Large Jugs (I used Halloween Candy Containers)
24 Balls (I used plastic golf practice balls – mini wiffle balls)
Masking Tape
Game Piece Assembly

To create the game pieces you will need to follow steps.

1 Make the category jugs by attaching the Hibernation Toss and Sort Category Cards to the jugs. I used some jugs that I had from candy last Halloween.

2 Cut out and hole-punch the Hibernation Toss and Sort Fact Cards. Use the yarn to tie them to the balls. I found and used plastic golf practice balls because they are light weight and have holes that I can tie the yarn through.

When you are done with these 2 steps you should be ready to play!

Game Play

Place your Hibernation Toss and Sort Fact Balls in a nice pile. I placed a strip of masking tape on the carpet so that we could have a no-pass line. Then, place the jugs a distance from the masking tape line, like 5 feet. A player picks up the Fact Balls one-at-a-time, determines whether it is for a hibernating or non-hibernating animal, then tosses it into the matching jug. Once all the balls are in the jugs they player earns one point per correct answer.

Hopefully you and your children, students, or family can have some science fun with this Hibernation Toss and Sort Game as you learn about hibernation, hibernating animals, and maybe even Groundhog Day too!.
