Polar Bears of 

Summer

Scientific and social controversy swirls around polar bears and whether not potential land-based foraging might help them as the ice-free period in the North continues to increase with climate changes.

Our lesson plan tackles this scientific controversy head on. We do not tell students what to think. Instead, we provide real-world data, evidence from both sides of the controversy, and ask learners to evaluate this timely, complex issue.
