Hibernation hoopla at Jewish Academy of Orlando!

The end of fall introduced the kindergarten students at the Jewish Academy of Orlando to the hibernation habits of many different animals. Science lessons answered inquires about the 5W's: who hibernates, what happens to animals when they hibernate, where they hibernate, when they hibernate, and why animals hibernate. To culminate the unit, the kindergarten students had a Hibernation Hoopla. During the Hoopla students in KA and KB were partnered up, given an animal (of the stuffed species), discussed where the animals were going to hibernate, and said good-night to their furry little friends for the winter. Although the students have put their animals to bed for a long winter's nap, lessons will continue as the number of days the animals are in hibernation are tallied. The students will wait patiently until the groundhog comes back out in February to tell them if we should expect an early spring.
