Surviving Winter
Email share

Winter can be harsh. When the cold season arrives, most people crank up the heat at home or throw on a warm jacket when they go outside. But what do you do if you're an animal living in the wild?

Different animals survive winter in different ways – they have different physical characteristics and behaviors that help them survive when conditions change. In this blended lesson from WGBH, students learn how animals survive the change in conditions that occurs each winter. Students develop their literacy skills as they explore a science focus on varied physical and behavioral adaptations.
