Ready to Hibernate?
This week we started writing and thinking about our weekly wonder. The wonder questions are from a website called Wonderopolis and a link can be found on our class web page. It is another way for us to learn and think about science during our very busy day. This week the wonder was all about hibernation. We compared migrating and hibernating and talked about how food supplies really effect what animals do in the winter in Vermont. I asked the crickets which animal they thought hibernated the longest, and I asked them if they were getting ready to hibernate what would they do? I know I would fill up on all of my favorite foods, find a soft feather bed, wear my favorite hoodie, cover up with my down comforters and snooze away.
