Mission Activity
I hope you have learned something new about bears. Now I want you to pretend that you have to draw a picture of a bear for someone who has never seen one. Draw your bear doing an activity that comes natural to him such as, climbing a tree, fishing or eating. Also tell the person some things he should or should not do if he sees a bear in the woods. Explain your picture to your teacher.


Mission Steps
1. Look again at the description of a bears body and draw a picture of a bear. If you need to look at more pictures, click on this link.
2. Describe how you are going to draw your bear and what he will be doing.
3. Describe your bear to your teacher.
