First Grade Hibernation

Thanks to fiber-optic camera technology, the first graders watched real-time footage of a black bear named Lugnut as she hibernates in a den beneath an upturned sugar maple in northern Maine.  The 8 year old Lugnut gave birth to two cubs while in hibernation.  The camera is a project of the Wildlife Research Foundation in Maine.

Upon completion the first graders used their iPads to research many animals that hibernate, become dormant or go into diapause over the winter.  Enjoy the pictures of the various animals they discovered!
