Hey there Peepers!

Today we learned all about those little stinkers – SKUNKS! We learned about how they hibernate during winter and are nocturnal! We then practiced our spraying skills, remembering that skunks try to give plenty warning before spraying. They will hiss, stomp their feet and then spray if they need to! We made two really fun crafts and looked at some skunk furs. We then bundled up and went outside where we tried to make hibernation dens in the snow. We then played and tried to look for bugs like skunks would.

Next week, we are learning about animals that live underwater!

See you next week!
