What educators are saying

This was exactly what I was looking for! My students loved this activity! Thank you for a great resource!
Wow! Such a comprehensive resource! And I love that rubrics are included as well! Thank you so much for this engaging project!


Animals in winter is a perfect resource for project-based learning. Let your students explore the wonders of how animals use different strategies to survive changes in their environment.

This project based learning unit focuses on the animals chosen by the students, two animals that hibernate (bear and hedgehog), two animals that migrate (monarch butterfly and duck), and two animals that adapt (rabbit and deer) during the season of winter. This PBL was “piloted” on a preK class and they had a GREAT time! The activities presented in this packet can easily be adapted to a kindergarten level.

This unit contains the following activities:

Link to Voki, Sorting animals,

Animals in winter facts, Pocket chart pictures,

KWL chart, Patterns,

Rubric and Self-Assessment, Making sets,

Pre-Kindergarten Standards, Tree patterns,

Kindergarten Common Core Standards, Headband patterns,

This PBL has been updated to include technology tutorials for Chatterpix, Voki, and Thinglink and a fact booklet on Winter animals is included.
