Hedgehog Kindergarten Programs March 2, 2017Posted by bsciencecenter in Uncategorized.
Each winter, the Science Center visits 18 kindergarten classes to present about habitats, adaptations and characteristics. “The Mitten,” a book written by local author, Jan Brett, is a favorite read-a-loud book in Burlington.
Ms. Pavlicek references the story book and has a giant mitten to post illustrations from the book. She connects their habitats with geography of the world. The hedgehog is a particular animal character in the book that isn’t native to the northeast US. Ms. Pavlicek brings the live hedgehog out to visit during the end of the program. Students and teachers are amazed by this unique creature.
Our hedgehog comes from a wonderful place called Hamor Hollow Hedgehogs in Pelham NH. Please do your research before considering having any pet into your home.
