As a wrap up to learning about where animals live in the winter I thought it would be fun to make a poster that I found at Fun4Kids.
Hailey colored several different animals.
Then she glued various pieces onto the poster- a cave, tree, burrows, rocks, etc.
Then we talked about (reviewed) where each animal lives during the winter and Hailey glued the animals to the correct places.
Then Hailey added some snow (cotton).
Once it was dry I added the words.
Then we talked about how Polar Bears stay warm during the winter even though they live where there is snow.
First Hailey put her bare hand in the snow- and decided it felt pretty cold.
Then she put on a “blubber glove.” I had 2 ziploc bags. In one bag I put Crisco. Then the 2nd bag I turned inside out and put inside the first bag so that the Crisco wouldn’t get all over Hailey’s hand.
Hailey put her hand back in the snow and thought it was pretty neat that it no longer felt cold.
