BRRR! It’s Cold Outside! & Winter Animal PBL


 
 

We may no longer have snow, but it is definitely the season of winter.  After the past couple of weeks of bitter cold weather outside and assessing children for the end of the semester inside, we have decided that some of the winter animals we have talked about have the right idea about the season of winter. Hibernation! A few weeks of being snuggled up inside our houses sounds good, but unfortunately not to be. So, we decided to “hibernate” in our classrooms instead. There is nothing like coming to school in our pajamas, keeping the lights down low throughout the day, doing quiet activities and eating munchies to warm our bodies and our spirits. What a great way to culminate our study of animals in winter.  We recommend a day of hibernation for everyone!
 
 
 

Well, we did do a few PBL activities on winter animals, but it didn’t feel like work! (see below)
