This is the first Power Point presentation I’ve ever attempted. It became my second full-time job this past week. I have learned many new things. My favorite new skill is that I learned how to copy and paste pictures from the internet. I’ve also learned to not be so afraid to push buttons on the computer – it won’t bite! I’ve always been able to figure out just what I needed to know without going any further.
The subject of bears came about because my son worked on a school project about Polar Bears in Third grade in 2009. I thought it might be fun to expand on the subject. It is also good practice for me, since my Major is Elementary Education. This presentation is meant to be an example of a learning tool for elementary age students. While working on this current project we learned even more about Polar Bears than before. While they are on the Threatened Species list, not all hope is lost. There are some groups of Polar Bears that are thriving and even growing. I will continue to keep myself updated from time to time by checking in with polarbearsinternational.org. Their website keeps track of different groups of Polar Bears around the world. They also keep visitors updated on bear sponsorship as well as sponsorship opportunities. Lastly, another fact I learned has to do with the American Black Bear; I never knew there were bears in Mexico!
