Each year we try add more and more ideas to our preschool unit on polar animals. We've rounded them all up in one place for your convenience. From the Arctic to Antarctic we've got your covered with the best hands on learning activities to study these climates and the animals who live there.

We began our homeschool preschool unit on polar animals with a KWL chart to pin down what our daughter knew and wanted to know about polar bears and penguins. We added to it and edited it appropriately as we learned new things about polar animals. I used her knowledge, questions, and misconceptions to direct our lessons.  You can certainly gear your children's learning to their own KWL chart!
