I hope you LOVE these adorable Polar Bears. I know that my students do!
We have had so many compliments on how great they look and how cute their faces are. This is such a cute art project to add to any Winter or Polar Bear unit. It is very easy to assemble, and the writing just adds to the fun. The polar bears take on their own personality just by placement of the pieces or by the facial expressions your students draw. They can even make them boys or girls. It is so fun to see how different each one looks.
These are a part of our "Ice, Ice, Baby" section in our hallway every year. It is always so fun and entertaining to see what the kids come up with to describe their polar bear, or responses to the writing prompts.
It is also fun to watch them learn to draw polar bears on their own at the art center and create their own stories about them.

------I have been creating projects and templates for years. I try to fit as many pieces as I can onto each page to save paper while still giving children space for cutting. There is a complete pattern to use if you choose to cut out your own pieces for them to assemble or to copy onto cardstock or construction paper for them to cut their own. Either way works great and they are both as cute as can be!
THANK YOU & I HOPE YOU AND YOUR STUDENTS ENJOY THE WONDERFUL ART AND WRITING THEY CREATE!
