We recently wrapped up our unit on Polar Animals and Opposites. The lessons started with this adorable book about a loud, big white polar bear named Alex, and his small, quiet best friend Zina. Alex and Zina live on opposite sides of the world, but they travel to meet each other in the middle.
I printed photographs of the 4 different species, and the students worked to sort them on the pocket chart. They loved this. It was another activity that they wanted to repeat over and over again during centers.
Even though the unit was cut short by a few snow days, our study of polar animals and opposites was a hit!
All of the circle time lessons (7 total) and center activities are included in this Polar Animals pack:
