Today we had a great time with our third grade buddies from Ms. Wang's class. We watched about half of the DisneyNature movie Bears. This is a movie that chronicles the first year of life of two brown bear cubs in Alaska. Ask me to tell you the names of the bear cubs. DisneyNature movies are filmed with no intervention of what is happening to the animals, so a couple parts today may have been a little scary, but I had reassured the children before the movie that the cubs are fine in the end of the movie. The bear cubs are actually born in a reserve so there are some very close up pictures of the cubs when they are quite tiny. After they leave their den in the reserve, they have to cross the snowy mountains to go to areas where there is food. Ask me to tell what things the bears ate. Here are some facts we are learning more about in the movie.
And a little something to smile about!
Have a great weekend!
