These polar bears were created by Montessori students in grades 1-3. We began by painting a wavy line pattern with the cool colors blue and violet. Next, students watched a video to learn about polar bears and their young. We cut paper and made the polar bears almost entirely from circles and half circles. The final touch was some stamped snowflakes in the background made from cut cardboard and straws. This was a great project for the winter months and taught students about patterns, colors and shapes!
