1st Graders Complete Study Unit on Bears with Fun Science Labs
Our first graders recently completed their unit on bears, exploring both polar bears and brown bears. Throughout the unit, they completed reading, science, and social studies activities related to bears around the world. The unit concluded with a fun science expansion lab to determine if they could “grow” gummy bears by adding water to them. They could! Other activities throughout the unit included hibernation reading during Flashlight Friday reading time, polar bear blubber activities, and science labs exploring how bears are able to hibernate, as well as why they need to hibernate.
