Brown Bear During this lesson students read the book “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” by Bill Martin Jr. and illustrated by Eric Carle. Kindergartners learned what an illustrator is, and were given the opportunity to be illustrators themselves. They started with the sentence Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? , and then drew what their brown bear saw. Using construction paper templates, scissors, glue and markers kindergartners collaged a brown bear holding their drawing.
