The following are ideas for using
Thank you, Brother Bear (or Chip Has Many Brothers) in the classroom.

We made route maps of “Chip’s Big Journey,” in Thank you, Brother Bear. I showed first graders how to decide symbols for the map key. Green triangles became forest symbols, brown square, Nanna’s house, and so on. A dotted line represented Chips tracks, with an X marking the spot of each event. After I made a large map on the bulletin board, using construction paper, each child made their own route map of Chip’s Journey. We love the story and students easily ordered each event after the map-making experiences.
