Mission Activity
Congratulations, you have successfully completed our bear hunt for knowledge! Since you did such an amazing job, you have been chosen by National Geographic to lead and guide others in your very own bear hunt.  You will use all the knowledge that you gained while visiting the Bear Den website.  And since you are now working as a reporter for National Geographic, it is important that you be able to recognize the type of bear you are tracking.  Is it a grizzly bear, polar bear, panda bear, or some other type of bear?  Make sure that you will be able to describe the looks of the bear.  You also will want to pay close attention to what the bear is eating.  Lastly, you need to pay extra attention to where the bear lives.  Does the bear live in a cold climate where it snows, in the forest or woods, or some other place?  Good luck and when you finally do catch your bear, be sure to draw a picture of him so that you can show everyone back at home!

Mission Steps
1. Explore The Bear Den website and learn all about different types of bears.
2. Draw a picture of what you saw during your bear hunts. 
3. In your drawings you should include what the bear looked like that you saw and what their home may have looked like.
4. After you're done with your drawings, we will discuss them and you can tell me all about them.  You can also share them with the rest of the class.  I will put your bear drawings on the internet for everyone to see, so do a good job!
