Bears are dangerous omnivores. They eat other animaals such as flesh of animlas fruits and vegetables. Bears can almost eat anything. During the winter season bears give birth to young rather than laying eggs.

There are many types of bears such as the polar bears, grizzlybears and pandas. Australian koalas are not actually bears, they are known as (pouched animals).

Bears are strong heavy creatures with thick limbs, small tails and small ears. They have a thick coat of fur that keeps them warm in the cold seasons. It has crushing back teeth known as molars. Bears have poor eyesight and hearing that can be used for hunting. They have an excellent sense of smell that they can use for hunting.

3/4K Week 8 Activity

Hi 3/4k,

Today’s lesson we will be using the “Unique Australian Animals” Website to find information.

Looking through the website you will need to find:
1. 3 animals that lay eggs
2. 3 animals that are nocturnal
3. 2 animals that dig burrows
4. What animal will thump the ground with their feet to warn other members of their group that a predator is coming, such as a dingo?
5. What animal will bury themselves in any left over mud or soil to survive drought conditions?

We are going to use Google Docs to record your information. You will need to access the portal to find this program. It is very similar to Word.

Education Week Reflection

I am sure you all had a great time celebrating your learning last week. I wonder what interests you most of all.

I enjoy learning about different languages and cultures. It makes me feel happy when I can practise my skills in this area to speak French and Spanish, in particular. It also helps me to understand where people come from and how different people interact with each other in the many countries across the world. I would like to learn more about different art techniques because I enjoy looking at amazing artworks in galleries. I also enjoy learning dance routines.

What do you like to learn about?
What makes you happy when you learn?
Why do you like learning about this?
What would you like to learn more about?
What else do you enjoy learning?

You may have more than one thing you enjoy.

I look forward to reading some of your comments.

What new skills have you developed this week?
