Virtual Field Trip to Learn About Polar Bears

Continuing with our Holiday Curriculum…

Yesterday we learned about the Arctic region that surrounds the North Pole. One of the most popular inhabitants of that area (aside from Santa Claus and his elves) is the Polar Bear. We thought we’d find out more about them…

Polar Bears

Seaworld, in San Diego, California has a remarkable exhibit all about the Arctic area of planet Earth. One of the highlights is the Polar Bear exhibit — where visitors can view the massive white bears swimming and playing in their huge and very cold “pool”. Seaworld maintains this website where you can see wonderful photos of Polar Bears and learn all about their behavior, dietary needs, reproductive cycle, adaptations for the aquatic environment, and much more. This site is kid-friendly and includes references for further study — for those who just can’t get enough of these magnificent creatures.

After you learn all about Polar Bears you might want to go to the Wild Arctic Fun Guide page of this site. You will be rewarded with comprehensive information about the Arctic region of the world — a nice supplement to yesterday’s website recommendation about the Arctic. You will also find mazes, puzzles, and word searches, as well as a number of hands-on science activities to reinforce learning the material covered at this site. Have fun!

To extend the learning, parents/teachers can print out the Arctic Animals teacher’s guides designed for grades K-3 and 4-8.
