Useful as part of a study about the topic of variation. Watch the clip with the children and then split the class into three groups. Allocate each group one of the animals - polar bear, snow fox and reindeer. Watch the clip again and ask each group to focus on their allocated animal and remember at least three facts that they learn from the clip. Following this, gather the ideas from the children to use as a plan for a class display. Allow each group to use their collected facts and conduct further research to design a poster about their animal for a class display on variation and adaptation.
