    This has been in the news and so I am sure many of you have already seen it. I think it is a great activity for parents to do with their kids; it gets them out and about and also learning how to use a map. You may want to add your bear to the map!

    It's also a good introduction for maps for teachers. I was also thinking how the bears could be great story prompts for kids. They could create a photo story of the bears they see, create a video, invent  characters, write a 'bear diary',  what journey has the bear been on, which countries has it visited?

    Any other thoughts of areas of the curriculum or activities that this could lead to?

          Could also write/describe/vlog 'character profiles' for particular bears that catch their eye? In my small community we have a facebook page for the bear hunt - maybe some of those imaginative stories could be shared on those types of community pages?
