Polar Bear on Belly on Snow (Discovery Education)

Join us on Thursday, October 30, at 1:00pm ET, to considerĀ Polar Bears by the Numbers — our math challenge.


My colleague, Kyle, is up on the tundra in the Polar Bear Capital of the World this week. He’s watching for the polar bear migration and spending time in big, roving polar buggies with scientists and experts on polar bears and climate change.

Almost every day this week, Kyle and the team are bringing live webcasts to you from this frozen landscape. You and/or your teacher can register and watch; go to the Polar Bears International website to register and to learn more about polar bears and the Tundra Connections.



October is National Principal Month and Discovery Education is celebrating by recognizing great principals! If you have a principal who is showing great leadership, you can nominate him or her for the Discovery Education Principal Achievement Award. Great principals will be featured on the Discovery Education blogs in November, be given a certificate of achievement, and may even receive a Discovery prize pack.

Nominate your principal today! Click HERE to access the nomination form.

Happy National Principal Month!
