Class Experience

1. Students will learn about the physical characteristics of Polar Bears such as size, features, diet and arctic habitat. 
2. Students will learn how scientists use these characteristics to compare and classify a species such as the arctic Polar Bear. 
3. Students will learn why conservation of Polar Bears is important and what is being done to prevent the extinction of this arctic species. 
4. Students will also learn new vocabulary words related to the study of Polar Bears and their arctic habitat.
No homework, but your child may be interested in learning more facts about polar bears and animal conservation while making additional drawings related to the topic of arctic animals.
