A little Polar Region Fun

Monday, January 28, 2013
I really LOVE the polar regions and had even more fun developing my unit this year and adding things/tweaking things to make it just the way I wanted it.  I know I'm kinda aging myself with the old school KWL chart but - I think they can still be effective to spark discussions on a new topic.  To get the kids even more motivated than they already were about the topic ~ we made a very cute penguin snack that they went nuts over!!!  It is included in my pack.  Here's the real back story ~ we had library today so I bribed ...gently encouraged them to behave and be extra good during library prep - and if so we would make the snack.  *I was pretty much going to do it anyway*  Shh!  Don't tell - I know you do things like this too...come on' admit it.  Well anyway...
I try to include a snack idea for most of my units and then I always include a response sheet.  They are fun to include in their end of the year memory books along with a photo.
I can't WAIT for tomorrow - the 100th day --- I will be posting about it for sure.  Here's what I hung on our door for tomorrow morning -- remember we will be celebrating like royalty.  I already have my tiara ready!!


  1. Love the idea of a snack AND response sheet. My kids would love this as a capper on our penguin unit.

    Today was day 92 in our neck of the woods. Have fun tomorrow!

  2. Love the snack idea! Can't wait to see your Royal Party for 100th day!

  5. So fun to study polar regions! I live in Alaska so we study them from just our side our window. We live on the Yukon River ten miles from the Bering sea! so much fun to listen to my kids. If you want to skype or anything let me know. I teacher kinder but also have a group of after school kids that can write.
