Run for cover!

Since autumn, the children of 2P in Nyon have been investigating the disappearance of animals: but where have they all gone?

  • Tous à l’abri !
  • Tous à l’abri !
  • Tous à l’abri !

We described four possibilities available to them: They hibernate, they overwinter, they migrate or they adapt. We distributed 24 different animals in the form of images from these four categories; then we asked each child to choose one of these animals in the form of a mask, which they then colored. The following day, everyone put on their mask and played the chosen animal. Everybody had to act out their winter lifestyle for one period. The hibernators each took a pillow and a blanket and went to a dark room to sleep. The ones overwintering, took only one blanket and had the right to get up to drink, drain, possibly nibble and check if the spring was a sign of life. Migrators fledged to Nyon 2, which represented the south; in two of the classes, hidden earthworms awaited them. Those who had to adapt, had to look in the corridor and the master room for shelter and food (nuts, hazelnuts, acorns, dried fruits, twigs, moss) on four legs and, of course, masked! Upon the return of the migrants, who announced the return of spring to all, we exchanged our experiences: it was exciting! The following week, we received a visit from an animal reporter from the Jura who told us about his experience in the animal world, the winter, with some videos of his production – it was beautiful. In January, we will go to a hedgehog shelter in Geneva. In the spring, we will watch the marmots!
