The Bear Family

by Dieter Betz

  1. Before reading aloud, split the book up into three readable parts: beginning, middle, and end.
  2. Hand out three pieces of paper and have students title them with what grizzly bears eat, what kind of an environment grizzly bears like to live in, why can grizzly bears be dangerous.
  3. When finished reading aloud a section that you laid out have your students fill as many of the pages as possible with appropriate facts that they learned from the section. Repeat the process until the book is finished.
  4. Make a class chart compiling all of the facts.
