Hibernating Bear


Bear puppet
Bag or box


1. Introduce your bear puppet after reading a story about bears (see suggestions below) at
group time. Pull him out of a bag or box and surprise the children.
2. Have the bear tell the children that their song woke him up. Make him sound drowsy and
maybe a bit grumpy.
3. He can explain how bears hibernate in the winter. He might mention other animals that
hibernate in winter and ask the children questions about winter in general. What do they like
to do in the snow? Do they hibernate, too?
