Gr 1–4: Winter Animals

Grade 1-4

Available Tuesday – Thursday weekly.

This online program consists of two portions, in addition to pre and post-activity worksheets.



Stand-alone video lesson about how animals adapt to winter. Join RSM interpreters to see animals in our Life Sciences Gallery.  Learn how animals deal with winter in Saskatchewan, with definitions and provincial examples of insulation, migration, and hibernation. A second optional video covers the seasonal changes made by plants. (Note: This portion can be done without the interactive program)

Interactive Program

Online Microsoft Teams Meeting (approximately 45 minutes):  Students will be guided through more Saskatchewan animals, challenged to describe the adaptations on display, and invited determine how they cope with winter. This is a live online experience through Microsoft Teams where your class can work with an RSM interpreter and also ask questions.  Teacher computer screens will need to be projected for the class to see and hear.  Teachers will assist in coordinating communication between the RSM interpreter and the class during this program.  (Note: This portion is intended to be done after the video portion.  They do not have to be done on the same day).
