As the weather starts to cool down, many people, including myself, find it hard to wake up and get out of bed in the morning. Not only do humans find this hard, but many animals do too. Certain animals have their own way of coping with the cold weather. Some migrate, while others hibernate. This printable pack focuses on animals that hibernate.
