  2.   Going on a Bear Hunt
The classic tale is read and or sang. The teacher announces that we need to capture the bear that has escaped in our class. Teacher brings the kids on a obstacle course with all the make believe equipment they need such as rope, boots, pick, flashlight, binoculars, and swisher to cut grass. Teacher sets up obstacles along the way while acting out story throughout classroom. For example, "Oh my I see a dark cave! Lets get our flashlights ready and look inside. Each child gets a turn to look into a dark painted box, that is a make pretend cave. At the end the teacher would announce, "Oh no I see a bat and run!" and then go the next made up obstacle for the kids to do. At the end you could have a toy bear or cut out one and have the kids finally capture it. For the art project at the end they all could make bear caves out of clay, paper mache, or heavy paper.
