Classroom Challenges

For elementary students, we have developed some fun projects covering issues related to grizzly bears (make a comic strip featuring our own Grizzly 399) and plastic pollution (upcycle plastic from The Belize Trash Monster). Inspired Classroom Challenges are standards-based, and they are FREE to participants, while building skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and communication.

So by now I hope that many of you have heard of Grizzly 399 who is currently trying to raise 4 rambunctious cubs.  She is 25 years old!  A ripe old age for someone to become a mamma of so many kiddo bears!  We are so excited to have the opportunity to write about her and also share her life as it is evolving.  So this months animal facts will be about grizzly bear hibernation!  Something that just surprised me – did you know that grizzly bears (and other bears) when they go into hibernation do not poop or urinate during the time they are sleeping? Rather they recycle it within themselves!  Wow, the ultimate recyclers!  Learn about this in our new book Grizzly 399 Hibernation Pandemonium.

Challenge Yourself

This month's challenge is to help celebrate Pollinator Week!  How can you help to celebrate? Examples include plant for pollinators, reduce pesticide use, keep out invasive species, and get online to learn about bees and butterflies. Without pollinators, our world might not have enough food! Watch this video to learn about world impacts on our bees – by It’s Okay to Be Smart.
