Showing for 3 days only, June 26 – 28. What happens when a frisky little polar bear named Lars ventures out on the first day of spring? He explores his Arctic home, meets new friends, and saves some endangered whales. After the show brings Lars’s adventure story to life, it takes on a documentary flair, with a tour of the Arctic. We visit some of the animals who live there, through photographs taken by scientists on polar expeditions.  We learn about how real polar bears live and how the melting of Arctic sea ice is affecting their habitat. A short star talk section introduces the Arctic night sky, the constellations Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, as well as Polaris, the North Star, and the star patterns of the Big and Little Dipper.  Check out the trailer below.

Running time:  27 minutes     Suitable for preschoolers – 2nd graders, and family audiences
