Does anyone have any ideas for a bear unit?
A VERY quick google search found this:
I used the Keywords 'pre K bear theme'...try it, there's more out there you can sift thru...
Again, as a secondary math teacher, I don't do themes. But try here: http://www.edhelper.com/polarregions.htm
You can always focus on pandas!
Panda Theme Preschool
Panda Alphabet: letter P
Panda Puppets with Paper Bags
Panda Bear, Panda Bear What Do You See by Bill Martin Jr. and a cool lesson cycle that goes with it: Safari Intro Lesson
Here a few sights that I have in my favorites.

You could turn the dramatic play area into a bear cave/bear den or an artic encounter to represent the habitat of polar bears
Songs/Creative movement ideas:
Teddy bear, Teddy bear rhyme
Going on a Bear Hunt Song
having the children do bear walks
Fiction and Non-fiction bear books
class, class, what do you see? based off of Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you see? book.
water, polar bear figurines, large ice cubes, buckets, scoops
water and toy fishing poles with fish because bears eat fish.
Goldilocks and the Three little bears
open-ended bear sculptures out of home made play-doh, pipe cleaners, small popsicle sticks, googley eyes, foam pieces, pony beads
goldfish (pretzel, grahm cracker, saltine cracker original, cheese cracker etc.)
fishing snack (thin small pretzel sticks, and cream cheese died blue with food coloring for the pretzels to be dipped into and then goldfish for the children to fish for(stick to their pretzel sticks).
artic sculptures using sugar cubes, white cotton balls, glue, q-tips, pom-poms, glitter, small popsicle sticks.
Here's a unit from www.littlegiraffes.com
