Activity Overview

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.

Before Birth

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.
