Fall Leads into Winter

During a "Building Words" lesson, a group of first graders were discussing words like "fox" and "frog." Then the conversation turned to the coming of colder weather. 
Jack:  "I know an animal that hibernates in the winter."
Reid:  "Which one is it?  I think the frog, right?"
Jack:  "Yes, they dig a hole and sleep in the mud."
Ella:  "What about a fox?  I don't think they hibernate."
Jack:  "No, they don't.  A fox is an animal that will adapt in the winter time."   
I love to watch kids use their intellect and share ideas!
