This week we started exploring ‘hibernation’. How to creatively introduce this to a group of 1.5-3 year olds was interesting in itself. We started by talking about the change in weather and how all the food that some animals eat is not available.

I made these visual aids to add interest,  and the children were very much taken in by this.




Following this we spoke about how animals could possibly hide from the weather until it passes. Just like we see in the visual aid, the animals are tucked away in little hide outs.

We will be continuing with this topic, focusing mainly on the hedgehog. How he collects food and finds a good sleeping place.
