SEES Teacher Coordinates Community "Bear Hunt" Activity For Kids: Place Teddy Bears In Windows, Drive Around To Find
Darren Doyle, story:
South Edmonson Elementary Music and Art Teacher, Mrs. Jessica Doyle, is coordinating a bear hunt for her students and the entire Edmonson County community.
Before you actually get "loaded for bear," it's important to note that these are teddy bears, not real ones. Mrs. Jessica, along with many other educators, have continued the search for new and fun activities for youngsters who are cooped up in their homes during the coronavirus pandemic.
"We would like to encourage our community in Edmonson County and anywhere else, to put bears either in your windows in the front of your house or out on the front porch," she said. "One fun way to get out of the house without putting yourself in danger is to go on a teddy bear hunt in our community."
Mrs. Jessica said the game is as simple as riding along with an adult, looking for teddy bears in windows and porches, and keeping count; however, the most important part of the game is actually having bears to hunt, and that's where the community can help.
"So again, we're asking all our community members to participate in the game by placing teddy bears in your front windows and porches so that our students can hunt them," she added. "Any positive activity means so much during this time."
