Here's how to do it.
Give students a 12 x 18 sheet of white construction paper, bulletin board paper, or chart paper. (I used bulletin board paper.) Have them ball the paper up, straighten it out and ball it up some more. Expect squeals of excitement because when do we ever allow them to do that?
Once the paper is straightened out, carefully tear the sides of the paper off to make an oval shape.
Give students black paper and have them cut out paw pads and claws.
Glue paw pads on the front and claws on the back.
Admire your hard work! Didn't they turn out amazing?
We made a circle map yesterday and did a little fact writing yesterday and today.
Today we learned about blubber and how it kept the Polar Bears warm and we did the "Blubber Glove" experiment.
Here's what you need:
And here are some pics of my sweet children doing the experiment.
They were amazed - it was precious :) Well worth my hands being greasy all day long! :)
