Welcome to Richmond Hill Montessori School

‘Tis the Season for Hibernating!

Do you know all the animals that hibernate?
This past month, the children in room 110 have been learning all about hibernating animals through, stories, poems, songs and research. Children were assigned an animal to explore and learn about their hibernating habits.  We all have learned so much. 

Did you know that bears are not true hibernators?  They do sleep in their dens for longer periods of time but they occasionally wake to eat.  The children also learned that certain frogs and fish bury themselves in mud and stop all activity until the hot summer months are over.  This is called estivation.

Take a moment to watch our short video of us singing our hibernation song.
