Class Experience

1. Students will learn facts about the physical characteristics of North American Brown Bears such as size, features, diet and habitat. 
2. Students will learn how scientists use these characteristics to compare and classify a species such as brown bears. 
3. Students will learn why conservation of brown bears is important and what is being done to prevent the extinction of this species. 
4. Students will also learn new vocabulary words related to the study of North American Brown Bears.
No homework, but your child may be interested in making learning more facts about brown bears and animal conservation science while creating additional drawings related to the topic.
