Activity Overview

Where Do Polar Lives? mentions other arctic animals other than polar bears. Students can chose these animals or any other arctic animal and write interesting facts about them. The Frayer Model works really well for exactly four facts. Have students use the traditional or spider map layouts for more or fewer facts.

Arctic Fox

The arctic fox is covered with thick white fur during the winter and grey-brownish fur during the summer. Seasonal variations in the color of the fur ensure camouflage.

Bearded Seal

The bearded seal gets its name from its thick, light-colored whiskers, which resemble a beard.


Walruses are cinnamon brown in color. They are able to turn their hind flippers forward to aid in movement on land.


Lemmings do not hibernate, they endure the tough Arctic winters. The lemming has special protection from the cold from its thick fur.
