This week the children listened to Waiting for Winter by Sebastian Meschenmoser.
As part of their post-discussion, the children brainstormed various animals and the ways in which those animals hibernated.
From their brainstormed ideas, you can see that the children have sorted their facts and identified several animals they still wonder about (those statements are marked with a question mark) that bear further investigation.
-bear(s) have a very long sleep
-squirrels go up to their nest and sleep
-iguanas sleep ?
-turtles go to sleep underwater ?
-ladybugs sleep under a log ?
-bees hibernate in their hive
-crocodiles go under the sand to sleep ?
-squirrels store food for the winter
-skunks crawl in to their den ?
-bears eat lots of fish before they go to their tunnel to sleep
