In the absence of cubs onsite, we will share with you the recent visit to Lincoln Heights Elementary School in Morristown, TN (Curator Janet Dalton is the principal) during which some of our education team taught the third graders what it takes to be a curator for ABR. Each child helped with the work up of a “cub” and the formation of a plan for the cub’s care. The activities were based on the actual procedures followed by Curator Janet and Curator Coy when a cub arrives at ABR.
The children and their teachers thoroughly enjoyed the experience and each child received a certificate designating them as official Junior Bear Curators.
There were 80 third grade students who became “Certified Junior Curators” that day. They were proud, and so were we!
