Polar Bear Paw Measurement

In honor of BEAR week, we are learning about polar bears. Today, we learned how polar bears use their strong paws as weapons. We made paws that are the size of an actual polar bear's paw. We then used our knowledge of estimation to estimate how many polar bear paws it would take to walk from our classroom to the cafeteria. After we recorded our estimates, we walked down to the cafeteria, measuring our steps as we went. It takes 165 polar bear paws to get from our classroom to the cafeteria!
