This little polar bear isn’t just art, it’s loaded with math concepts. To make the polar bear, we used whole and half circles from the Roylco fraction friend mosaics which makes cutting circles and exploring geometry and fractions super fun and easy.

Supplies & Instructions
pom pom and clothespin (paint brush)
From the circles you will need 2 whole large circles (head and body), 1 large circle cut in half ("arms"), 1 medium circle cut in half (outer ears), 1 whole small circle (snout), 1 small circle cut in half (inner ears), 2 whole tiny circles (eyes), 1 tiny circle cut in half (nose). After the bear is pieces together, glue it to black construction paper. Using the pom pom and white paint add snowflakes.
Before cutting, use the whole circles to discuss small, medium, and large. Order the circles from biggest to smallest. How many whole/halves (or semi circles) did you use in your creation? Are the snowflakes whole or half circles? What was the smallest circle you used on the bear?
