The theme of Bears and Pandas can last a couple of months in the classroom. It is a theme that is well provided with resources. There are endless storybooks written with bears and pandas that can be used in your whole language program. You need not be an expert on bears or pandas. With a large selection of resource material available, you can research any questions. For Social Studies hang a world map. Plot the locations of different kinds of bears or pandas. Use the patterns in this package for map markers. For Drama, act out the play, "The Three Bears". Have a teddy bear picnic with peanut butter sandwiches, and of course, the Teddy Bears. For Oral Language, recite simple bear chants in the morning. This Animal Science lesson provides a teacher and student section with reading passages, activities and task cards to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
