Bear of the Month is a collaborative effort between Inspired Classroom, Bear Trust International, Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center as well as many scientists and conservationists to bring bear education and conservation messages to students all over the world. Each month during the 2013-2014 school year, classrooms can tune in to a live interactive lecture by bear scientists and conservationists from around the world. Through interactive video conferencing, students learn about each of the 8 bear species, their conservation issues, and current field work. Students will meet the bear researchers who will share some of their field work with them. Each month, we will highlight one of the 8 bear species worldwide. Target audience: 3rd grade – lifetime.

This is an unique opportunity for students to engage directly with scientists and conservationists. Five classrooms per bear species will be able to interact live with the presenter and ask questions during the live video conference. These five classrooms are limited to the first five to sign up. We will also have a RSS feed for this event! The RSS feed is available to an unlimited number of classrooms. Students viewing the RSS feed will be able to participate and ask questions via Twitter @InspiredClasses #8bears.
