A Beary Wonderful Hibernation Unit (WTRW)

2 Free Printable Mini Units to help your littles learn about bears and hibernation

Children seem to be completely fascinated by bears and hibernation.  For that matter, we grown-ups are pretty enchanted by the idea of sleeping all winter–missing out on the cold months, getting to Actually Rest (when did we decide that ability was something we could do without? I don’t know about you, but the older I get the less sleep I get and the more I Need Sleep.  It’s a conundrum).

And it is definitely that time of year, my friends.  The excitement of the holidays is just about over and Real Winter is about to set in.  Even my mama down in Florida is starting to mutter about long-sleeved shirts.  (Poor thing.)  It’s dark.  It’s cold.  It’s… boring?  Whatever, I’d rather sleep.
