2-Week project, due back Monday 6th February

As part of our topic this term, we have been sketching and drawing teddy bears before modelling them using clay. Over the next 2 weeks, you need to be researchers, using books and the internet to find out as much as you can about teddy bears…

  • How were they invented?
  • What famous teddy bears do you know about?
  • Why do people like them?
  • How are they played with?

Here are some internet links you might find useful:

Remember! Think carefully about how you will present your work. It should be clear and easy for the reader to understand, with:

  • Neat with good layout and your best handwriting
  • Full sentences with lots of interesting description
  • Well-structured so the information makes sense

Good luck! We can’t wait to hear what you find out!
