Do insects hibernate?

You may have come across a butterfly hiding in the curtains or a ladybird under a chair and wondered if they were still alive. Some insects do hibernate, red admirals for example, find dry warm places to hibernate and bees huddle together in their hive to keep warm. Challenge your children to investigate which insects hibernate through the winter. Links to Seasons in Year 1 and Animals including Humans in Year1+2 and Life Cycles in Year 5.
