 Simple Schooling Winter Survival Strategies takes a comprehensive look at how different types of animals make it through the winter season.  The unit begins with an introduction (or review for some) on latitude and longitude as well as a comprehensive explanation of why certain parts of the globe experience harsh winters while others are mild or non-existent. The three major strategies are explored: migration, hibernation, and active survival.  Students will learn vocabulary terms associated with each section and complete several quizzes as they progress through the course.  A final test and certificate of completion are both included at the end.
