Summit Lane Kindergarteners Explore the Hibernation Station

March 29, 2018

Summit Lane's kindergarten classes have been very busy learning about bears. The children learned about the Grizzly Bear, the Black Bear, and the Polar Bear. The children learned about the bear's habitats, what they eat and how they live. The classes worked to compare and contrast the different kinds of bears. The completed different graphic organizers both in the classroom and in the computer lab.

The children also learned about fictional bears as well. They read stories and compared and contrasted teddy bears to real bears! The children sequenced the different stories, and the children also brought their own bears to school to hibernate.

As part of the non-fiction unit, the children brought in teddy bears to hibernate in a cave that was built in the All Purpose Room. The children enjoyed seeing how the cave was being built. They learned what a bear puts in the cave before hibernation to make it more comfortable. The children placed their bears in the cave (hibernation station). When spring arrived, the bears were ready to come out and enjoy our first annual Bear Jamboree! At the Jamboree, the children listened and participated in bear storytelling, as well as singing and dancing to body movement bear songs. The children made maps to track the story We're Going on a Bear Hunt and finally the bears were removed from the cave with a big springtime hello! This unit helped bring learning to life!
