THE LITTLE POLAR BEAR

8 Apr

Most of my lesson plans are developed after a book, a story or a cartoon episode. This time, the lesson plan I share is based on one of the adventures of The Little Polar Bear. In winter, I focus my first grade lessons on everything related to this season: clothes we wear, food we eat, activities we can do, animals we can see, weather conditions, etc.

Before watching the cartoon episode called “The snow storm”, I tell my pupils we are going to watch a story about an animal that lives in the Arctic, but they have to guess what animal it is. After sharing their opinions, I switch on the projector so they can see the cute face of The Little Bear. They usually go “awww so cute” ๐Ÿ˜€

After watching the video, we answer to a few comprehension questions:

  • Who else is in the story besides the Little Bear?
  • What are the names of the two main characters?
  • What’s the weather like?
  • What is the problem of Lass?
  • What do Lass and Lina like of each other?
  • What is the solution for Lass’ problem?

Usually, the polar bear is quite a popular animal amongst little children. Which keeps them motivated and interested.

We work on some body parts and compare them with the human body parts:

We also work on some general information about Polar Bears through a little investigation we do. Working in groups of 4, the pupils have to share their knowledge and come to a decision about these features:

Once all the groups are done, we put together what we have decided. If there are some doubts, we check the information hereย national geographic website.

After the hard work, it’s time to learn a song about the Little Bear! (sorry for my horrible singing skills).

 

It can also be fun to make their own polar bear craft! Here there are some examples. The one I like the most is the craft you make using your own hand ๐Ÿ™‚
