Hibernating Bear
Materials needed:
1 small paper cup
1 brown pom-pom
1 piece stiff paper (about 3x5)
cotton balls
The cup is the cave. Have children tear a small half circle piece off of the cup starting at the cup rim. This is the opening to the cave. Glue pom-pom in center of stiff paper piece. This is the bear. Put glue on the rim of the cup and place it on the stiff paper with the pom-pom inside. Spread glue on the outside of the cup and the stiff paper around the cup. Pull cotton balls to stretch the fiber to look fluffy. Place this on the glue that is on and around the cup. This is snow. Your project will now look like a bear curled up in a cave to hibernate for the winter.

 Introducing Hibernation
A cute short poem to help children remember what hibernation means.
I have a friend named Bernate
who gets real sleepy when the weather gets cold.
Whenever I see her, I wave my hand at her and I say, "Hi Bernate!"

Bear Hunt
Have the children bring in bears on a Monday and talk about bears and hibernation in the course of the week. At the end of the week, in the morning before the kids come in, hide the bears in the back behind trees, on swings, etc. The class then goes out to find their "hibernating" bears ["bear hunt"]. When they come in they can have cooperative learning groups. One group can draw pictures where their bears are on a map of the backyard, the other group can tear paper for a third group to paste onto a box to make a cave for the class bear for the winter.
