This step by step bear tutorial is simple, but still keeps its bear features pretty true to form. It would be a good choice for studies about actual bears, or as a creative follow up to any reading time stories about bears.

The standing body position is easy to humanize, as you could some clothes like pants or shirt or dress on top without too much difficulty. That would be a fun lesson about anthropomorphism, if you ask me.
