Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!



Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

The Office of Student Academic Services in collaboration with the Sonia Bujold Initiative and Let’s Talk Science at McGill University, has put together a lovely free online mini booklet of self-paced activities about fall. From identifying migratory and hibernating animals, to games, there is something for everyone to enjoy!

Migration, Hibernation and Adaption! An online activity by the Sonia Bujold Initiative at McGill University - Macdonald Campus

As the days shorten and the temperatures drop, we find ourselves switching from shorts to pants, open-toed sandals to closed shoes and putting on extra layers of clothing. The crisp cool air and changing leaves signal to us that fall has arrived – and all too quickly!

We are not alone in preparing ourselves for the upcoming cold winter. During this time, some animals are busy collecting and storing food, and creating cozy hibernation spaces. Others exercise self-protection by growing thicker fur coats and continually eating to build up their fat reserves. Then there are the really lucky ones who just leave - migrating to the warm, sunny tropical oasis down South for the winter months.

Please join us as we explore the fall season and learn how different animals, birds and insects prepare themselves for the upcoming freezing winter.

As summer comes to an end and school starts again, our feathered friends prepare for the fall and winter seasons. Through our activities you will learn about how to safely interact with and feed ducks, guide animals back to their homes, and learn exciting and rare bird facts through an online quiz that you can share with your friends, family, and birders alike!
