Polar Bear

Keeping in theme with the Arctic, we made a polar bear!

'Knut' by Craig and Julianna Hatkoff.
This is a true story about a tiny polar bear cub who was rejected by his mother, then raised by his zoo keeper.

Craft Supplies:
Paper plate
Cotton balls
Small black circles (eye)
Large black circles (nose)
White 1/2 circles (ears)

Glue on ears, eyes and nose to the paper plate.
Next glue the cotton balls around the eyes and nose.
It's that simple!

Winter Eskimo's

We have begun to do a unit about the Polar region.  The first topic we learned about is Eskimo's.

"Mama, Do You Love Me?" by Barbara M. Joosee
It is a lovely story about a parent's love and the Arctic.

Craft supplies:
Paper plate
Light blue paint or a blue marker
Cotton balls

Have the children paint or color blue around the rim of the paper plate.
Next, have the children glue cotton balls around the rim of the paper plate.
Draw a face in the middle of the paper plate and add hair.
Now the children have made an Eskimo!
