Information about Penguins
Winter can be a tough time for animals and birds.
Animals like the hedgehog and bat hibernate because they cannot find enough food to eat. The sheep spends the winter outside and grows a thick woolly coat to keep warm. The farmer has to feed the farm animals with food stored in autumn.Many insects and small animals die in winter. The insects lay their eggs before they die. These will hatch out in spring. The fox and rabbit are out and about in winter. They depend on their senses to find food. Their thick winter coats keep them warm. Birds fluff up their feathers to keep the chill out. It's hard for them to find food and they rely on berries and seeds to stay alive.
Did you ever wonder where Santa Claus lived? Well this week second class are discovering lots of interesting things about the north pole. Sometimes it is called 'the top of the world'. The land around the North Pole are called the Arctic It is very, very cold there. There is ice and snow all the time-even in summer!
Whales, seals and many birds find lots of fish to eat in the cold Arctic water. In winter most of the birds fly to warmer countries. Some of the animals hibernate.
Check out more facts about the North Pole:
An iceberg is like a mountain of ice floating on the sea. It looks very beautiful but it is very dangerous to ships. About 100 years ago a big ship called the Titanic was going from Cork to America. It hit an iceberg. It sank.
