Issue 14 of the Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears online magazine is now available! In Polar Oceans, learn about two very different oceans - the Arctic and Southern Oceans - at opposite ends of the Earth.
As always, our magazine features science and literacy content knowledge for teachers, as well as a variety of other professional resources. This month, learn about podcasting and how to create ocean-themed performance assessments. Discover high-quality science and literacy lessons and children's literature.
Our Feature Story this month explores the life of the blue whale, the largest animal on Earth, and a simple food chain in the Southern Ocean. This informational text is available at three grade levels (K-1, 2-3, and 4-5) and in text-only, book, and electronic book formats. We've also included templates to engage your students as they develop comprehension skills.
We've also got ideas for integrating art and music into your ocean unit. Download our podcast to learn about an educational song that teaches students about our "One Big Ocean," or create an ocean mural inspired by Wyland's whaling walls.
Of course, there's much more in the latest issue of Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears. Dive in and explore Polar Oceans today!
