A Busy Year Extension Activity
- Grades: PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5
- Set up a bird feeder and observe the changing visitors. Which birds stay through the winter? Which birds are the first to arrive in the summer?
- Discuss the different ways people get ready for winter.
- Teach the children how to take their pulse. Compare their resting pulse rate and their pulse after active play. The pulse rate of a hibernating grizzly bear is 10–12 beats per minute.
