The Troublesome Cub is a children's book written by Lisa Horstman. This is a literature response foldable that goes along with that book and addresses some key reading elements: Character analysis, setting, problem/solution, predicting, cause/effect, and sequencing of events. Join a curious bear cub on his adventure through the Smoky Mountains, where a romp in the wrong direction leads him to a human trash bin. Based on a true story, the cub has to learn the hard way that raiding the bin wasn't the best of ideas. Find out what happens when black bears collide with humans in their environment. Great for environmental awareness activities, a look at black bears and their habitats, and rhymes (since the book is written in rhyme)! All you need is the children's book to get started! *Children's book not included in this FREE packet.
