Viking Adventure
by Clyde Robert Bulla

For this lesson we did some polar bear science.  The vikings were in Greenland, also known for polar bears.  We discussed how the polar bears have hair on the bottom of their feet that help to prevent them from sliding on the ice.

You will need 2 cans of tuna, a cookie sheet, a wash cloth, and a rubber band.

1st- put the washcloth around one of the cans of tuna and secure with the rubber band.
The one with the washcloth is the polar bear and the one without is the viking.

The viking slid away and the polar bear held his ground.

The next thing we did was mark off 20 feet on the side walk outside of earth.  That is how far a polar bear can jump.  I had him run and jump to see if he could jump that far.  

He made it 6 feet!!
