This is our Unit Studies shelf with activities to help children explore what animals do in winter.
Here’s our setup for making animal tracks in playdoh.
Matching Animals to their tracks – a free printable from Montessori for Everyone. MFE has a wealth of great freebies at this link!
More animal tracks. This is a hand-me-down set I received.
Bear in a Cave craft. I adapted this idea from one I found here.
To add an additional opportunity for fine motor practice, the children pin punched the outline of the bear rather than cutting it out.
These are some 3-part cards we made of local winter birds. It’s fun to use these when we learn how to make the bird calls.
