We’re Going on a Bear Hunt takes readers through a field of grass, a river, mud, a forest, a snowstorm, and into a bear’s den. Students will create sound with percussion sticks and visual masterpieces with grass, mud, water, sticks and snow. This module will invite students to consider what makes a house a home and learn about the shapes and sizes of houses different from their own.
