Hibernation is a way for some animals to cope with the harshness of winter. They curl up in a safe place and stay there until winter is over. Animals that hibernate are known as hibernators, they include bats, hedgehogs, ground squirrels, etc. Students of grade IV, at Presidium, learned and understood the concept. To illustrate their understanding, they were given a research project in which each student was assigned to a hibernating animal that they needed to write about, their habitat where they hibernate, and their preparation before what happens to the body during hibernation. Students explored and recorded their observations of related animals and presented them in virtual classrooms. This, in turn, helped them to learn the skills associated with the inquiry and processes of science such as observing, measuring, hypothesizing, predicting, analyzing and communicating.
