I have seen a lot of Polar Bear projects floating around the blogs so I thought my Kinders might enjoy creating one of them. I found one on a blog (sorry I can't remember which one!) and I did a directed drawing with the kids after I read them the story, How to Hide a Polar Bear, by Ruth Heller. We used black crayon, white oil pastel, and poster crayons (larger versions of cons. paper crayons). I couldn't convince ANY of them to let me keep some for display! They were too excited to take them home!
