A phylum is the second largest way of grouping the animal kingdom. Bears are animals, so they belong in the Kingdom Animalia. Bears are also in a special group called Chordata (pronounced core-data), which is the same group as Humans, Birds, Fish, Mice and Lizards. Chordata is the phylum bears belong to.
A group of bears is called a sloth. This term was first used in 1492, according to the Oxford English Dictionary. The original phrase used was "A Slouthe of Beerys". The word sloth derives from the Middle English term for slow, but it is a wonder as to why early writers would think that a group of bears moved slowly.
