Invite children to recreate the bear habitat. Allow them to use the book Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson as a guide.

Have children build the bear’s cave with blocks.

  • Once children have built the cave, encourage them to bring the stuffed animals into the cave.
  • Prompt children to think about the sounds they might hear while they are sitting in the cave (inside and outside sounds).
  • You may want to review the book with children to help them recall the sounds from the book.
