Arctic Storytelling

It’s the little polar bear’s first birthday and her mum has sent her out to catch fish for their dinner. Join her on an adventure across the icy Arctic, discovering how life is adapted to survive. Pupils will handle specimens and join in with a treasure hunt for lichen to develop their knowledge and understanding of Arctic lands.
