Polar Bears: Keeping Warm at the Arctic

This Polar Bears: Keeping Warm at the Arctic lesson plan also includes:

Learners study the Arctic polar bear, and its body coverings, to see how it survives in the harsh Arctic climate. This lesson plan was developed in North Carolina, and specifically suggests a trip to the North Carolina Zoological Park. However, the basis of the lesson plan could be completed without the field trip component. There is a good hands-on simulation involving thermometers, and some excellent supplemental information and extension ideas embedded in the plan.
