Polar Bears: Keeping Warm at the Arctic

This resource also includes:

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.
