Hibernation Mini Unit Study

Last January, I used a hibernation theme with my preschoolers and extended it up to meet some science needs for my elementary age children as well.   I thought I’d take a few minutes to share with you some of the books and resources that we used in case you were starting to look ahead to what you and your children were doing after the holidays.

Hibernation Mini-Unit Study

I’m going to start with some of the books we used.  I’m going to use affiliate links, so if you purchase through them, thank you!  We read:

We watched a couple of shows as well:

  • Wild Kratts:
    • “The Snow Runners”
    • “Groundhog Wakeup Call”
    • Journey to the Subnivean Zone”
  • Magic School Bus
    • “Goes Upstream”

Although I mentioned some of the printables we used above, I also had some additional activities and experiments we did that I wanted to list out:

This is a study that we had a lot of fun with and I feel pretty certain that we will revisit at some point during Monkey and Owlet’s early elementary years because, as much as we did, we barely scratched the surface of things that we could do and explore during the month that we spent with bears and hibernation!
