In Like a Lion....

Whoo hoo!  March has arrived!  Notice I didn't say, "Spring has arrived."  Because in Florida, it's been springtime since January!  The only noticable difference?  The wind.  It's a bit scary to think of how warm it's been and what that could possibly do to the ocean and the hurricane season this summer.  (Although my son and daughter and friends said that the ocean water was too cold to go into yesterday, even if they did come home sunburned!)

For all of you still in the midst of winter, or if you have talked about hibernation in your classrooms, this is a MUST SEE video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=vJRDpTUIrJI&vq=medium . This clip is great for animal lovers and young children -- Momma Bear and her three very young cubs in the wild of northern Ontario , Canada . Humane wildlife experts taking a winter bear census right in the hibernation dens. You'll love this, besides the cute precious 6 week old baby bears (eyes still closed) the guy (Rick Mercer) has some of the funniest lines.This is a special video of retagging a mommy bear.
