Teacher reads aloud to the class, Little Panda
As the teacher reads, the teacher stops and discusses with the class the information being presented.
- What does the baby panda look like when it's born? Is it black and white or is it a different color than what we are used to seeing? Can baby pandas see when they are first born? Do they have teeth?
After the teacher reads the story, the students will have their opportunity to share the photos they found f different types of bears to the class.
- Students should be able to describe key features about their pictures. What colors are the bears? What type of bear is it? Is the bear big or small? Does he live in a cold place or? or is it warm?
* See attached copy of Bear Photo Checklist
Teacher reviews with the students the different types of bears they learned about on the previous day.
The teacher will then distribute a blank color page of a bear. The students will chose their favorite bear to imitate on their color page.
After all the students have colored their bear, the student should cut it out and the teacher will collect them.
As a class the teacher and students will graph them on chart paper.
Once all bears have been graphed, the teacher can discuss with the students how many of each bear was chosen as a student's favorite. The teacher may also discuss with the students which bear received the most favorites within the class.
