Are you students ready to plunge into learning with polar bears?
The topics discussed in this packet are:
All About Polar Bears
Parts of a Polar Bear
Where Polar Bears Live
What Polar Bears Eat
Life of a Polar Bear
Mothers and Cubs
In this 104 page packet, I've included:
Part 1: Posters to hang in your classroom and to use while introducing polar bears (real life photographs that show the parts of a polar bear, along with important vocabulary).
Part 2: All About Polar Bears: These article pages were designed as a way for you to "hook" your students at the beginning of your polar bear unit. You can display the article pages on your document camera as a whole group or print and display during small group instruction.
Part 3: Differentiated All About Polar Bears Mini-Books - These are differentiated mini-books that can be used during small group instruction.There are three versions. Each version is slightly easier than the last. I wanted to give you options because I know that many of our students come in reading at different ability levels. It is up to you to pick and choose which articles you use with your groups. You can either print in color and laminate or print them in grayscale. Text-Dependent Response sheets follow!
Real life photographs will enhance your students understanding of polar bears. I've also provided sheets for students to write a summary.
Part 4: True/False Polar Bear Activity: After learning facts about polar bears, students will sort the sentences according to whether they are true or false. I've also provided a cut/paste sheet too that requires students to read simple sentences and glue them in the correct column.
Part 5: Graphic Organizers Galore - These graphic organizers, vocabulary books, and independent practice sheets can be used however you wish! I tried to offer you many different options to help meet the needs of your diverse group.
In addition, I've also included links to some fabulous polar bear web resources and books!
