HURON — Students at Kindernook Preschool have been busy learning about various animals and their adaptations for cold weather.
A “Beary” fun culmination to the study was a special “Hibernation Day.” Students were invited to wear their pajamas and bring a furry friend to class.
“Going on a Bear Hunt” was just one of the many adventures of the day, as well as arctic creature water exploration, pudding painting sleeping bears in dens, playing with snow dough, munching on bear snacks, sipping hot cocoa, and reading stories in a cave.
As part of their unit, students also enjoyed a special visit from Doug Minske and his Alaskan Malamute, Juno. Minske explained how Juno’s fur is an adaptation for his breed and the winter climate.
Instructors are Karen Wehde, Jessica Anderson and Candy Guthmiller.
