Bears...Oh My!

The Burlington Science Center has a very interesting interactive bear exhibit in our hallway this week.  We did a fun scavenger hunt today to learn all about bears.  Check out the photos of our class and some of the neat things we learned.

We used posters, books, and bears to answer the questions on our scavenger hunt.

David, Brian, Taylor, Alex, and Devin learned Kodiak bears live in Alaska and weigh up to 1,500 lbs!

Many of us really liked the Polar Bear.  Check out the size of its feet!

We made connections to bears in movies, tv shows, commercials, sports, books, etc. Can you figure out who these bears are?

Of course we all touched the model of the bear scat!

Tyson and Atharve examined the different parts of the baby bear and figured out why it is in a tree.

Wow!  A bear's paw print is HUGE!

We even learned ways we can protect bears and ourselves.

Stefani makes an observation about the Kodiak bear's claws, while Maitri and Elizabeth look on.

We all worked really hard and learned a lot about bears.

Stefani now understands why the Polar Bear is the largest bear in the world.  It is GIGANTIC!

Thank you to the Burlington Science Center for bringing this awesome exhibit to our school.
