Polar Bears: Keeping Warm at the Arctic

Learners study the Arctic polar bear, and its body coverings, to see how it survives in the harsh Arctic climate. This lesson was developed in North Carolina, and specifically suggests a trip to the North Carolina Zoological Park. However, the basis of the lesson 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.
