Tundra Connections Teaches Kids About Polar Bears

Polar Bears International is once again offering teachers the opportunity to virtually connect their students to scientists studying polar bears. Over the next four weeks teachers can connect to one of the live webinars. During these live sessions students will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn from some leading experts on polar bears and Arctic climate change. Through these experiences students will learn about the animals of the Arctic and how they have adapted to survive in the harsh Arctic climate. Students will also see and hear about how climate change is affecting the animals of the Arctic.
