• ### Activity 1 / One More Jumps In Worksheet

Polar bears reside in the Arctic region, where it is always cold and snowy. Have your kids seen pictures of polar bears before, or maybe they have even watched nature videos with polar bears in them. Polar bears like to swim in the water. Show your kids the pictures where the polar bears are diving into the water. Now, read the text aloud to them. Help them count to correctly answer the question in the first section, and then move down to the second section and do the same.

• ### Activity 2 / Who Has 1 More? Worksheet

Do your kids know what chipmunks are? What do these animals eat, what are some of their habits, and where do they live? Chipmunks like to eat acorns, and usually gather and store these nuts somewhere hidden. This way, when the weather is bad and there are no acorns on the trees, they still have a lot to eat. Look at the acorns on the left side of the printout. Now, count the chipmunks’ acorns and circle the one that has 1 acorn more than the acorns on the left.
