Digital Talking Polar Bears

We have been working with West Virginia's Next Generation State Standards (CCSS) for informational text.  We began by researching polar bears.  The students are writing a 4 square (a format our school uses for writing) informational article.  We are using this article to make our individual polar bears talk.  Please enjoy all the interesting facts the students have learned. ( I will be adding more  as they finish their writing pieces and record their work.)
