  • Challenge Question #4

    We think the caribou winter grounds change each season
    because of the weather. If the weather is very cold, then
    the ground may freeze so they can't find food and they move
    south. If it's warm enough they might decide to stay where
    they are.

    They change locations from winter to winter because weather
    moves from west to east. If it starts to get very cold, they
    start to move. If warmer weather comes they stay where they
    are. Weather always changes and so will their route.
