If you have never seen the Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears website or the printable materials then you are missing out on one of the all time best classroom resources for elementary teachers out there. This webinar will introduce you to everything the website/ezine has to offer and it will become your go to resource for anything related to polar studies. Beyond Penguins ad Polar Bears does just that - it goes into the people who live and study at the poles, and shows the rich ecosystems that thrive in these extreme environments.
