Black bear, black bear, what do you see? I see a human looking at me!
It was so cool when the bear came up close to us on our field trip in May. Even though I teach third and fourth graders, we were still quoting Black Bear. The kids were so excited that the bear was coming close to them, and it made the Black Bear story come alive. Their reactions were priceless.
If you have young children and some of their story books are about animals that can be found in the zoo, consider going to visit the zoo to look at those animals. It will make the stories come alive.
This bear, by the way, can be seen at the Fort Worth Zoo. Check it out sometime at Zoo or Tropical Forest? It’s a pretty awesome zoo!
