The Seasons Make Animals Change

Animals change as the seasons change.


• Many animals are born or hatch.

• Parent animals feed and raise their babies.


• Many insects appear.

• Animals need to stay cool. Some sleep in the shade. Bats hang in cool, dark caves.

• Birds splash in water to cool down.


• Some birds migrate, or fly south, to where the weather is warmer. Butterflies migrate, too.

• Some animals collect food for the winter.


• Animals such as bears hibernate, or go to sleep.

• Animals such as dogs grow thick fur to keep warm.

• Some animals change colour. Some rabbits grow a white coat to hide in the snow.
