Using the timeline storyboard, students can create a growth chart of a baby polar bear. The book gives specific information about the growth of the cub but you could also have your students research the life of a polar bear cub and combine the information into a concise timeline.
Mother polar bear makes a den to prepare for the birth of her cub.
Cubs are born between fall and winter in the den. They are small, about the size of a guinea pig, and blind. They stay in the den to stay safe and grow.
Emerge from den in late March or April. The cub is the size of a cocker spaniel. The cub plays and learns with his mom. She teaches him how to play and hunt.
At age two or a little older, the cub is deemed old enough and is left to live on its own. The mama polar bear prepares for a new baby.
