How Many Bears Can Survive in This Forest?

2nd graders learned that bears need food, water, shelter and space as they "gathered" a variety of different foods for survival out on the playground. (Several students also discovered they had unwittingly collected a "bullet" as well!) As bears are solitary animals, some of the the students "survived," while many others had to "relocate" and find a new territory.
