- Monday Tundra Connections - Arctic ABCs (Target age: Content tailored to K-3, all ages welcome)
P is for Polar Bear, U is for… Ulu? Let’s go through the alphabet, Arctic-style! We’ll have some fun, see some polar bears and other organisms that live in the Arctic regions, and learn some new words along the way!
- Tuesday Tundra Connections - Ice Bears in Your Backyard (Target age: Content tailored to 4th-8th grade, all ages welcome) Learn how water in your backyard is tied to polar bears in the Arctic! Help us understand the global world of ice and water and why its conservation is so important to all creatures, not just polar bears.
- Wednesday Tundra Connections- Wednesday's Program: STEM on the Tundra: Cool Jobs! (Target age: Content tailored to 4th-8th grade, all ages welcome) The daily choices we make impact our world. Tune in to see how different teams on the tundra are utilizing STEM skills to support a global conversation and make a positive impact for polar bears. We’ll learn why you don't need to be a scientist to practice the core values of STEM. And, we will see some cool jobs that you might not typically consider when you think about the tundra.
Since 2010 Discovery Education has teamed up with Polar Bears International to bring students a series of webcasts from Churchill, Manitoba to learn about polar bears and their environment during the annual polar bear migration in Churchill. Leading up to the events, Discovery Education will host an online collaborative project using Global Labs to prepare students for this series of virtual field trips.
This will be a live streamed event. Please use #CelebratewithDE to interact and share your classroom learnings.
