Beaver, Bear, and Moose suffer a series of entertaining mishaps on their canoe trip. ( )
  Sullywriter | May 22, 2015 |
There is a bear a beaver and moose that are best friends, but they cannot cooperate to have fun. One day they decide to go on a canoeing trip, but they cannot agree on how to steer, where to go, and they break the canoe. The bear, moose, and beaver made a plan, but no one could agree to any plan. Eventually when the three best friends suffered a lot, they began to cooperate and walked back to their homes. As an activity for kids I would like students to form groups of two and cooperate to build a fishing line and pole. The book made me realize that sometimes cooperating within a group is difficult because sometimes there are many opinions and disagreements. I would love to work in groups more often in my other classes, so that I can learn to cooperate within a group. ( )

Three animal friends - elementary age kids. ( )
  melodyreads | Dec 16, 2013 |
A bear, a moose, and a beaver decide to go canoeing together. Their disagreement made the canoe flip over, so they try several other ways to make it work. They come across all kinds of problems. Eventually, they accidentally ran into rapids, and got stranded on a rock. They eventually came up with a plan, and got to shore safely.

This book can teach the importance of teamwork and cooperation. Disagreeing can lead to dire consequences. ( )
