Video Clips used
In this episode, we modeled finding information about an animal’s range – also called its distribution. We shared some words and phases that can be used to connect the notes we made from wildlife cards to other key words to produce sentences. We used Black bears, grizzly bears, and river otters to demonstrate how to report on an animal’s distribution on the physical earth. We also watched some videos about artistic bear representations and river otters.
