Last month the Bear Room learned all about the winter season. Luckily for them they have witnessed winter first hand with the first flurry of snow occurring. In true Frozen form, the bears decided to build a snowman with home made, non-melting snow! By mixing conditioner and baking soda the Bears were able to make their own snow to play with while indoors. They also learned about polar animals. We discussed how polar animals love to live in the cold and how they stay warm in such cold temperatures. By playing in ice water, the Bear Room found out why people need to wear extra clothing during the winter and polar animals do not. Our learning objective was to understand how winter occurs, what animals enjoy it, and all the ways we can have fun during the cold winter months.
