ReflectionReflecting on the lesson plan the teacher came to the conclusion that this lesson plan needed to
address older students, instead of 2nd graders.
Summary or Closure- the story book and video the gummy bear song video were meant to
begin the discussion on bears to bring the main point home to the students. The main point
ultimately being, is that although bears viewed at a distance may appear cuddly and friendly,
they are not. Bears, just like other wild creatures will defend themselves and cubs, if any, and
will hunt for food. This lessons ultimate goal then is respect the wild creatures of the forest and
not to make contact with them.
When on a hike to stay alert at all times since you will be in the bears home and before you go
to the forest, educate yourself about what to do if you get in to trouble.

computer software, and one on one teaching with the teacher and teacher assistant.

book bears, cartoon bears, and real bears in discussions of bears and field trip to the zoo. Both
