All photos taken by Gordon Bain on voyages to Antarctica in the austral summer 1999-2000 and 2000-2001. Thank you, Gordon, for teaching us and inspiring learning through the eyes of three small bears; Brownie, Berkley, and Oz Gold.
Sharing your creativity and FUN while on these voyages will forever be some of my best teaching moments with students in my classroom. I’m happy to share these little bears on ice with my readers. If these bears could only talk…they’d have tales to tell about their adventures. An additional link is from the University of Kansas, where the story of our Bears on Ice was used in another education outreach setting. Check out their journals and also the other educational resources at:
As you scroll over each photo, a short caption will appear on the bottom of your screen. Enjoy!
