Introducing Hibernation!

Hi! Just wondering if anyone had any good ideas or stories which can be used to introduce hibernation to a relatively low ability reception class. If poss the focus is on hedgehogs.

 

Thank you in anticipation!

Teacherjoon had a good idea - the children had a stuffed toy hedgehog which they made a nice warm home for in a shoe box until the spring time.

 

There are plenty of hedgehog stories about for autumn time The Prickly Hedgehog is good, he collects all sorts of autumnal foods as they stick to his spikes as he tries to find his little lost family.

 

We have had a similar thread on the forum before, perhaps a seach using the facility at the top of the page might throw it up! - use a word such as hibernating and put a star after it, so hibernating* and lots of topics threads will come up where that phrase has been used.

A good idea is to "plant" a wet, cold toy hedgehog outside and "accidentally " find it on a walk with your class, then you can take it inside and help it to hibernate, looking after it untill spring. It really shows the children all about hibernation!!!!
