Make Polar Water Mobiles


Have your students make polar water mobiles. They can work alone, in pairs or in teams. You can have them choose to make Arctic or Antarctic mobiles or assign the type they are to make. You could have two students, student pairs, or two teams join their mobiles together (one Arctic on the top, one Antarctic on the bottom) to make a single polar water mobile. Remember some things about Arctic and Antarctic water are the same and some things are different.


They materials you will need depends on the style of mobiles you choose to make. Here is a site where you can see examples and instructions for different style of mobiles.


No matter what style of mobiles you choose to make, you will need pictures or printouts of polar water items or you can have your students bring in or draw their own.


Hang the mobiles in your classroom and have the students see what they can learn about polar water from all the mobiles.
