Polar Bears need our help

Our class has been studying the effects of global warming on Polar Bears, specifically in Churchill, Manitoba as it ties in with the Social Studies curriculum in grade 4: "The North" and "Living in Manitoba", as well as a Science unit "Habitats and Communities". 
First we watched the live webcasts done by a group of people visiting Churchill.  The webcasts can be found at Check them out for yourselves! We also followed Andy McKiel's blog of his visit to Churchill.

There was one blog post in particular that tugged at our heartstrings and made us want to help the polar bears too!  It is called "If Polar Bears could talk" and here is the picture.
The class is working on a bulletin board display of how WE can help the Polar Bears.  A picture will be added soon.

Coca-Cola also has a Save the Polar Bears initiative and you can check out their website to see what they are doing as well.
