Pima Course: EDC 292

Topic: Polar Bear Tracking

Grade Level: 10-12 Duration of Lesson: 50 min

Description of Plan
SS.HS.S4C3PO2 Strand 4: Life Science, Concept 3: Interdependence of OrganismsAnalyze the relationships among various organisms and their environment, PO 2:
Describe how organisms are influenced by a particular combination of biotic and
abiotic factors in an environment
SWBAT work in collaborative groups using the PBI tracker to observe and analyze
data gathered by tracking polar bears, and then answer questions regarding the
movements of polar bears on Hudson Bay using the data they obtained with 80%

The Bellwork and the Background Information paragraphs students will read and
summarize. Bellwork: Name 3 reasons the sea ice is critical for polar bear survival. (For
feeding, mating, giving birth, may also include habitat)


With global warming affecting the sea ice, polar bears habitat is becoming smaller. Loss
of sea ice leads to a decline in the polar bear population due to reduced access to food
sources, loss of denning sites, lower cub survival rates, increase in drowning, increase in
cannibalism and decline in overall body condition.

The questions on the worksheet regarding the movements and information about polar

Students will write a 5 minute reflection on what they learned about polar bear
movements, their young, and survival.


Additional use of the Polar Bear Tracker to continue watching movements and follow
statistics on polar bears

Exit Ticket which reflects the information in the presentation and tracker
Exit Ticket: 1. Name at least 2 ways humans can ensure the survival of polar bears.
2. Why do scientists study polar bears?
Worksheet with background information and vocabulary words has questions on the back
which can be answered from the reading and website. If all are answered correctly,
students will receive 20 points.

Provide students with a copy of the Power Point presentation. In addition, students will
receive a practice sheet with sentences from the presentation that have blanks where key
words belong. Students will have to fill in the key words.
