Why Lesson Planet?
Third graders listen to a letter from a bear and his mother which is downloaded from a website before writing question they could ask the bear. They examine a postcard written by the character, find the which country Boston is in, and write notes on his travels. Next, they access the Yellowstone National Park website in order to find information for a class book on the animals in the park. Finally, they read more postcards from Bear and add to their writing.
