Arctic Animals Thematic Unit

One of my favorite activities to do during January is Arctic Animals. The science content is great, the books are great, and face it, the animals are adorable!  

These are the great books that I use when I teach this fun unit.

To make this unit even better, my favorite video of all time is available on youtube!

And be sure to bring snow into your classroom using this great artificial snow!

All you do is add water to make 10 gallons of ice-cold fun!
