Penguins and Polar Bears at Fishhawk Creek

It is getting cold outside! Although it does not snow here in Florida, for this activity the students made snowy, arctic themed crafts. For the first craft, the students made paper penguin hats to wear. For the second craft, other students created their very own version of the arctic skies. They cut out a silhouette of a polar bear and pasted it onto a blank sheet of paper. Then the students chose the colors they wanted to use for the sky. Fun fact: Even though penguins and polar bears both live in arctic climates, they do not live together in the wild! Penguins are found almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere while polar bears live in the arctic circle in the Northern Hemisphere.
