Introducing Hibernation A cute short poem to help children remember what hibernation means. I have a friend named Bernate who gets real sleepy when the weather gets cold. Whenever I see her, I wave my hand at her and I say, "Hi Bernate!"
Bear Hunt Have the children bring in bears on a Monday and talk about bears and hibernation in the course of the week. At the end of the week, in the morning before the kids come in, hide the bears in the back behind trees, on swings, etc. The class then goes out to find their "hibernating" bears ["bear hunt"]. When they come in they can have cooperative learning groups. One group can draw pictures where their bears are on a map of the backyard, the other group can tear paper for a third group to paste onto a box to make a cave for the class bear for the winter.
