Different animals have different strategies for coping with the hard winters in the northern hemisphere. Some fly south for a nice warm winter holiday. Some aren't lucky enough to be able to fly away, so they have to either find enough to eat in their home habitat or they have to hibernate. We have lots of activities on the theme of hibernation that will be great fun for the children in your service. All our curriculum plans are labeled with Aistear themes and Montessori learning areas.
