  • Before the cyber lesson, students should have some background knowledge about hibernation and its purpose. This cyberlesson is intended to take place in the beginning of the unit.
  • Students will have an good understanding that not all animals hibernate, however, they may have some incorrect information. This cyber lesson, as well as the accompanying unit will clarify any misunderstandings students may have at this time. One misconception students may have is that bears are “true” hibernators, which in fact, Bears are not "true" hibernators. They are one of the "light sleepers."
  • Students reading at a level 15 and above will be able to complete this cyber lesson independently, while students reading below a level 16 can complete this with a partner or in a whole group, with teacher narrating.
