A favorite story with a wonderful theme for exploring SHADOWS.
So many facts about shadows just from reading the story.
I love using this right around Groundhog Day for a little science integrated into a literature experience,
The packet begins with sequencing the events in the story, cause and effect related to facts about shadows, and writing about ways bear tried to lose his shadow.
Those activities are followed by connection the Facts to the story and then two experiments. One uses the sun as a light source and the other a flashlight.
Students reflect on the experiences.
