Animal Adaptations for the Winter

Grade levels: , ,
Cost: per classroom

All animals, whether they are herbivores, carnivores, or omnivores, must find enough food to survive the winter. Using the Hitchcock Center’s skull and mounted animal collection, we will study the characteristics and adaptations of local animals. Outdoors, we will look for signs of animal activity and learn about their habits. Snowshoes may be used in winter. Group size: Up to 25 students. We can provide snowshoes for students and 2 adults.
