Facts about arctic animals
What can you see?

If you can gather some resources together, they could have a go at the science activity, investigating how polar bears keep warm, that is in your pack https://www.science-sparks.com/how-do-animals-stay-warm-in-winter/ . You don’t need gloves if you don’t have them, they could just coat their finger in fat.

They could also watch Andy’s arctic adventures on cbeebies. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09s39xl/andys-safari-adventures-series-1-4-andy-and-the-arctic-fox
