Winter is an amazing time of the year! The inhabitants of far from every country have the opportunity to get to know him, and such an ordinary thing for us as snow seems to them to be a real natural wonder. Therefore, be sure to talk about winter to children,
who do not know the advantages of each season and do not know how to distinguish them from each other and make winter crafts.
The story is better to start with the fact that winter is the coldest season, because the rays of the sun are almost winter do not heat the earth.
For convenience, people have divided all seasons for months, and in winter, as in summer, in spring and autumn, there are three months - this is December, January and February.
Season Winter for children
December begins the winter, but ends our year.
January falls in the middle of winter and the beginning of the year. In former times, it was considered the most severe winter month.
February stands on the border of spring and winter.This month there is often a strong wind that accompanies any change in the weather. The days become longer, and the sun shines much brighter, but it still does not warm well.
All the surrounding nature changes in winter. First of all, this is due to the fact that the plants are prepared in advance for the cold: the trees shed their leaves, the grass and flowers wither and dry. All this happens because the life processes inside the plants are suspended. In addition, the fall of the foliage protects the trees from branch breakage.
But the main distinguishing feature of winter is snow.In the form of snow precipitation falls — moisture that has evaporated from the surface of the earth. It is known that the water freezes in the cold. Therefore, the droplets of moisture are transformed into snowflakes - ice crystals. At the same time, the lower the temperature, the smaller the size of the snowflake, and the warmer the air, the more the snowflakes become like openwork flakes.
Snow is not only elegant winter decoration. Rich snow cover does not freeze the ground, and therefore protects the roots of plants.Many animals and birds winter in the snow, it covers dens and minks, preventing the animals that have fallen into hibernation from freezing to death. Therefore, the snow can be called a warm natural fur coat.
It is not only the water that has evaporated from the surface of the earth that stiffens. In winter, the rivers, lakes and other water bodies freeze. Shallow reservoirs freeze through, and deep ice forms a thick crust, under which fish and aquatic plants continue to live. When the water becomes very cold, they fall into a half-asleep state, thus saving their strength.

And here are some forest animals in the winter, on the contrary, move even more actively, searching for food and protecting themselves from the cold. These include: fox, wolf, hare, squirrel, elk. A squirrel and a hare wear camouflage suits for the winter, in which it is more difficult for them to be noticed by predators. And some predators, such as wolves, gather in large flocks. So it's easier for them to hunt large animals.
A bear, a hedgehog, a ground squirrel, frogs, snakes and some other animals prefer to spend the cold season in hibernation - snowythe cover will not allow them to find enough food. At the same time, the gopher makes a reserve for the winter, and, occasionally waking up, supports his strength.

Some birds fly away from cold winter places to warmer lands: they are driven there by the feeling of hunger, because all insects hide in the winter. Such birds are called migratory. In the spring, when it gets warmer, they return to their homeland. This group includes: larks, swallows, starlings, rooks, swans.
Other birds prefer to spend the winter in the cold. A woodpecker and a jay spend the winter in the forest, and near the man - a magpie, a crow, a pigeon, a sparrow, a bullfinch and a tit. People try to help their feathered friends - make feeders and feed them.
