Reindeer Facts

Usually only male deer have antlers. Both male and female reindeer have antlers. Reindeer have their antlers for several months; then they fall off. New ones grow back later.

Reindeer live where it is cold and snowy. They have special fur that keeps them warm. Next to their skin, reindeer have thick, woolly fur. During the summer, the fur thins out so the reindeer will be cooler.

Reindeer have hooves that spread out when they walk on them. They are used to find food beneath the snow.

Reindeer travel in large herds from place to place to find food.

Reindeer live near the North Pole.

Reindeer are closely related to caribou.



We locate Mexico and Colorado on
our class globe! Then we locate the
North Pole!




Students get to make reindeer books! Inside our reindeer book we write real facts about reindeer!

You're such a silly fellow.

Who will know it's you

If your nose is yellow!

Rudolph! Rudolph!

Your way cannot be seen

Through the wintry weather

If your nose is green! 

Rudolph! Rudolph!

Santa gave a wink.

But what will Santa think

If your nose is pink?


 Rudolph! Rudolph!

It's time to fly at night

But you're quite a sight

Cause your nose is white! 


Rudolph! Rudolph!

It's time to go to town

But Santa's wearing a frown

Cause your nose is brown! 

Rudolph! Rudolph!

Santa has his sack.

But you're not ready

If your nose is black!


  Rudolph! Rudolph!

The children are in bed.

And now I know you're ready

Cause your nose is red!
