What is in this Course?

During this short course, we will discover that the polar bear is the largest land predator on Earth… and get to see one up-close!

We will meet with an amazing marine biologist called Danielle, who will tell us all about the polar bear and how it survives in the cold Arctic region.

Students will then be able to research an animal of their choice that lives in their very own country, and collate the information to produce a fact file. When the entire class has finished, this will become a class booklet on the animals in their country.

Teaching program

The teaching program is designed to walk teachers through the process of teaching students about polar bears. The document is aligned with the curriculum but can be downloaded and edited to suit the needs of your school or state. The course documents include real-world learning opportunities in which students use the knowledge they have just gained, to improve the lives and the knowledge of those around them.

Real World Learning

During this course, children will create amazing resources which they will use to pass on their knowledge. Each child will select a different animal and come together as a class to create a class booklet based on the animals of their choice. This booklet will be used as a valuable resource within your class, within the wider school community, or within the library. Students will also practice active listening and understand that every animal is important, regardless of location.
