This Where Do Brown Bears Live? lesson plan also includes:
What do brown bears in Alaska's Katmai National Park need to survive? Pupils explore the unique habitats, diet, and survival needs of this animal. They predict the consequences of removing any integral part of the bear's survival, and complete a cut-and-paste activity to further understand the elements of an ecosystem.
- What are some local animals your class could examine to determine survival needs? Do some field work to expand learning into your own backyard
- Although the lesson only suggests watching the free trailer of the Disney movie Bears, it may be good to have the movie on hand for the end of your unit of study
- Beautiful color photographs for the cut-and-paste activity
- Cross-curricular ideas including math, science, social studies, and language arts
