for Polar Bear Day
students will create a polar bear using their choice of

Chalk, Cotton Balls, White Construction Paper, White
- Allow the students to
choose from what type of medium they would like to
create their Polar Bear. Some examples would be,
sponge painting with white paint, gluing cotton balls

paper (for a torn paper look), cutting out felt.

different looks. Display the work in your
"Polar Bear Museum".

of an Arctic Habitat, including snow, ice floes,
tundra, different Arctic Animals, etc.

"Bear Dens" out of shoe boxes. Create
a Polar Bear mom and cubs to inhabit the den.
