Animals in Winter: Great Books, Free Resources and Activities

Please click HERE to see a new revised post of Animals in Winter

It finally feels like winter in Tallahassee today with cold winds from the north blowing and temperatures dropping. What a great time to teach students about what animals do in winter. I've put together some great resources to check out.

There are some wonderful books for read alouds. This one is my favorite. If you click on the picture you will find 12 Great books to read to your students.
Looking for some lesson plans? Look no further that Scholastic for the Pre-K-2 grades or Exploring Nature for intermediate grades. 

I love writing my own Read Aloud and Guided Reading Books for students and just finished my new Unit: Animals in Winter for K-1
I'm sure your students will love the Shared Reading Book and Mini Book
