Hibernation Time!

There are a vast amount of strategies for animal survival in the wintertime. One of these strategies is hibernation. When animals enter hibernation they enter a state of suspended animation. Their breathing and heart rate slows and their body temperatures can drop, in some cases below freezing. They do all these things to use less energy. Our friends in PreK 2 are learning all about the process of hibernation. They had exploring how different animals hibernate in their natural habitats!
