Box 2: Exploring Perspectives

Grizzly Bear AdventuresLearn about grizzly bears in an interactive storytelling adventure with your family! Guide Grizzly Bear Momma and her cubs through a series of decisions she must make after emerging from hibernation and see what the outcomes of your decisions are. 

Beginner Animal Tracking: Embark on a journey to discover what’s going on outside your back door when you aren’t around! Engage in track identification activities and discussion questions that will help your family put together the clues and reveal the whole story. 

Advanced Cloud Watching:  Do you ever look up at the clouds in the sky and wonder, what does it all mean? This lesson takes you beyond identifying cool shapes and figures in the sky—you will learn about different cloud types and engage in citizen science.
