A mother bear and a cub proved that elementary school students aren’t the only ones having fun on the playground.

Teachers at Isaac Dickson Elementary School in North Carolina were stunned to see a mother bear and a cub playing in the outdoor jungle gym, instead of the usual crowds of young children.

Adorable footage, shared on social media on Sept. 21, showed the black bear teaching her cub how to use the slide.

The clip opens with the mother bear patiently waiting at the top of the slide as the little cub climbs the stairs to join her.

Teachers at Isaac Dickson Elementary School were stunned when they looked out the window and saw a mother bear and a cub playing in the jungle gym

After a break at the smaller slide, the brave cub heads to the highest slide to join his mother, who has already slid down the bright green slide.

The group of teachers capturing the moment laugh and shout ‘oh my god’ before all screaming in delight as they watch the mother play on the slide.

But the mother runs back to the smaller slide and eagerly awaits the cub at the bottom, who is nervously standing on the climbing frame.

A teacher pretends to mimic the thoughts of the mother bear and says hilariously, “You can do this, honey, it’s the smaller one! You can do it!’

The cub finally gathers the courage to slide down the slide and join his mother, who proudly hugs the little bear in a huge hug.

A teacher says, ‘Oh my god! That seriously just happened. Oh my God.’

The excited couple continues to struggle at the bottom of the climbing frame, while the cub seems to be overjoyed learning to use the slide.

Teacher Betsie Stockslager Emry shared the heartwarming images on Facebook, cheering hundreds of people with the “cute” scene.

She captioned the video: ‘This MADE MY DAY – school playground… watch the whole thing!!

“I love how mommy goes down the big slide and rushes to the smaller slide, only to hug the little ones when they reach the bottom.”

The teacher told NBC 15 News that it is not the first time bears have visited the school, adding, “We are often closed off to bears on campus here.”

Commenting on the images, one Facebook user wrote: ‘This is great! My kids loved watching this!!!’

Another said: ‘WOW!!!!!! Best playground in town’

A third wrote: ‘My heart is exploding!’

And a fourth commented, ‘I’m done! That’s the cutest thing ever.’

While a fifth said: ‘Betsie, your video is so cute and I love your voices in the background.’

Bears are common in North Carolina and they have proven to be extremely playful animals, as last summer, five bear cubs invaded a family’s yard to use their play equipment.

The adorable cubs were filmed on June 12, 2020 in Asheville as they enjoyed exploring the swing and slide.

The bears’ attention was mainly focused on the slide with four of the cubs scrambling to see who could enjoy it first, while the mother bear watched.

The person who recorded the footage said, “This was shot in our backyard. It involves a mother and five cubs, two of which are believed to have been adopted from another litter.’

Earlier this year, DJ Jody Flemming, 50, was performing for a live stream at home in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, when a bear sniffed on his doorstep.

And a wild black bear caused a stir earlier this year when the animal interrupted a DJ while he was spinning a set at home.

Jody Flemming, 50, was performing during a live stream at home in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, when a bear sniffed on his doorstep.

In the footage, the DJ continues to mix the decks, unaware that a large bear is watching him, with only the thin screen of the door separating them.

After noticing a shadow, Mr. Flemming turns to open the door, assuming a neighbor is standing there – only to discover that the visitor is a bear.

He calmly chases the animal away and goes to grab his phone to take a picture. At this point, a car stops in front of his house and the bear escapes.

After making sure the bear was gone, the DJ continued his entire set to his stunned fans.

Black bears are known to be more dangerous than brown bears and are more likely to attack humans if they encounter them at close range.

North Carolina residents have long dealt with black bears, which are populated throughout the state — especially in coastal and mountain areas.

Their numbers are rising in the United States, with 300,000 of the creatures in the country — most living in Montana and the surrounding states, including Idaho and North Dakota.
