We love our time with Miss Emily!
After recess, we jumped into our studying of animals in winter and how they survive. We spent a considerable amount of time on hibernation in the morning. We read a couple of stories about hibernation, crawled into a cave and slept like a bear (snoring)
The afternoon brought our discussion to migration and adaptation. We talked about how some animals move from where it is cold, or will be getting cold (like Iowa) because their food sources will freeze or get covered with snow, and migrate South.
We also discussed adaptation of some animals like growing thicker fur, gathering food before it snows and some animals change colors to help them blend in with their surroundings!
