Ages ago pandas were completely white in colour, not an inch of black fur covered their bodies. They lived deep in the forests where they were rarely seen. In the forest were other animals and humans. Humans never really cared about the forest. They destroyed it without a thought. One day due to the carelessness of a farmer a tiny fire started in the forest, this fire grew and grew and became one scary and hungry fire.
Book-Based Activities are also a lot of fun for kids. Jodie over at Growing Book by Book has saved us all a ton of time and created a full year of Book-Based Activity Calendars so that you can extend the fun with a special book each week.The list includes both fiction and nonfiction. It is mostly comprised of picture books, but there are also a couple of chapter books to use as read alouds or to help with teaching multi-age groups.
Giant Pandas (Bears) by Marcia S. Freeman is a simple nonfiction text that shares one sentence per page. It is a terrific introduction to pandas for preschoolers and beginning readers. It also includes important nonfiction text features such as a table of contents, glossary, and index to help introduce kids to those parts of nonfiction books.
This was our first time reading Panda-monium! It is a picture book with a fun, bouncy rhythm that my kids enjoyed. Little Becket is hungry for bamboo, so he goes off in search of some. Soon more and more pandas are following behind him. First one panda joins, then two more, then three more, and so on. Acting this story out with small math manipulatives would be a wonderful way to show kids growing patterns in a concrete way. There is also a lot of rich vocabulary that is great for discussion.
For this book list I also wanted to include a couple of chapter books. As we revisit these themes later with my youngest daughter, I want to remember some of the books that could be helpful for my older daughter to read at the same time. These three books went well with the panda theme, and my former students used to enjoy them, too. These books would most likely be appropriate for kids age 6 or older, but of course every child is different.
3. When they are born, pandas are hairless and helpless- only about the size of a stick of butter. The panda mother must stay in the den for several days without eating or drinking, just to take great care of her tiny cub.

Babies are born between July and September, most often in a hollow tree. As many as two babies are born, but generally only one survives. They are very tiny when born but grow rapidly. Baby pandas cannot run, climb trees, or eat bamboo until they are about 7 months old. They will stay with their mother until they are 18 to 20 months old.
