Welcome back to class this week! Who’s ready to learn today’s word? Ellie and Edmond will be meeting some animals this week that are busy during the fall getting ready for winter. Today’s word has to do with that behavior.

Today’s word is Hoarding: gathering and storing food to be eaten later. There are two kinds of hoarding behavior. Larder hoarding is where an animal stores all its food in one place.  Scatter hoarding is where an animal stores its food in different places. Caching is also used in place of hoarding.

Animals who hoard food include squirrels, ravens, hamsters and nutcrakers.
