Polar Bears on Library Night

K.W. Barrett Elementary School’s Library Night celebrated second grade teacher Julie Schneider’s trip to Churchill, Manitoba Canada to study global warming.

Students and parents in attendance watched the teacher’s video blog and listened to the book “Winston of Churchill: One Bear's Battle Against Global Warming.” It’s a cute story in which a stogie-smoking polar bear wants to impress upon people the need to save his habitat, but gets the help of his wife only when he agrees to stop smoking!

Following the watching and reading, students made polar bear necklaces using yarn, glitter and white foam. A good time, as they say, was had by all on Tuesday night.

Henry and Sam Alves show off their polar bear necklaces with father, Mark. (Click to enlarge the image.)

Ms. Schneider, now back in the States, was in Manitoba for about a week. Check out her blog.
