Polar Bear Migrations
Today the Grade 4's began watching the live cam of the polar bears as they migrate from Churchill, Manitoba. We were able to catch some of the webcast and luckily watch a polar bear in the tundra. I used this live feed to launch our unit on habitats and communities. Students began inquiring about what polar bears need in order to survive in the tundra and why they wouldn't choose to stray to other habitats. They also became familiar with the Canadian tundra.
