Integrate art and writing into your science curriculum with these adorable polar bear paper bag books! These easy-to-make books are a meaningful way for students to record their learning during an Arctic animals or polar bear unit.

Three text and writing options make differentiating a snap!

Option 1: Printed text with pictures

Option 2: Fill in the blank text

Option 3: Pictures and blank lines for students to write their own information

The fill in the blank and blank line options come with and without handwriting lines.

Tip #1: Check with local grocery stores or big box stores to make sure white paper bags are available to purchase. Each student needs 3 bags to create a book.

No white paper bags? No problem! I also include directions for how to make the books using white construction paper or cardstock.

Tip #2: Put the book together at the beginning of the week or unit. Add a couple of pages each day instead of completing the book in one day. At the end of your study, these books are perfect for students to take home and share their learning with family and friends!

Please note: This book is now included in my polar bear unit for kindergarten and first grade. If you purchase the unit, you DO NOT need to purchase this paper bag book resource separately.
