This Grade One Science and Art lesson plan engages students in a read-aloud of Karma Wilson's book Bear Stays Up (Christmas Theme), followed by a cooperative art piece. The focus of the activity is meaningful gift giving (in this case, what an appropriate gift for a bear would be).
The lesson plan includes the outcomes and objectives covered and the materials needed. It breaks down each component, step by step, in great detail.
A photograph of a sample paper quilt is included.
An appropriate lesson for teaching before Christmas. I used this lesson to conclude a unit on bears in early December.
