Young Discoverers: Feathers and Fur – Our Animal Friends in Winter
WEDNESDAYS: December 5th, 12th & 19th 2018
Children will become Jr. ornithologists and zoologists and share what they know about what birds and bears do in the winter. We will examine real seagull, crow and peacock feathers and introduce new vocabulary words ie: migrate, hibernate and shelter. We will go into our own make believe cave and hibernate – then hear the story OLD BEAR by Kevin Henkes . Before we leave, everyone will make a bird picture to take home – decorated with real feathers!!
