This activity is a fun way for younger children to learn about one of the most well-known animals in the Arctic, the polar bear.
The polar bear is one of the iconic animals in the frozen north, and the world’s largest land carnivore. This activity focuses on how animals in the Arctic are suited to these colder environments, through insulation and camouflage.
To make this easier for young people, prepare all the materials in advance. This includes cutting circles out of white construction paper for the ears, and black circles for the eyes and nose. If you are using tissue paper rather than cotton wool balls, it may be easier if this were torn or cut up in advance.
The paper plate polar bear can be made into a mask by cutting holes for the eyes instead of adding the black circles, as well as adding a head band made from string or elastic.
