In the book Touching Spirit Bear what was the first thing Cole eats after being attacked by the bear?
The first thing that Cole eats after being attacked by Spirit Bear is... blades of grass. He tries eating blades of grass, but chokes on them. Then he chews and chews and he gets them down successfully the second time.
I think chapter 5 or 4, not so sure. Sorry i couldn't help more :(
He tries to kill the bear with a spear he made, and a charred knife he used to cook fish.
He understands that no matter what you do, you are going to die someday.I will tell you the truth I really don't like talking about death, that is a good question.
Cole carved... An eagle, wolf, raven, seal, beaver, spirit bear, rain drop n lightning bolt, seagull, and a circle. The Spirit Bear was carved twice, then turned into the circle. .
When Cole is first banished to the island he is 15. After being mauled by the bear, treated for at the hospital and returned to full health, he returns to the island to start his banishment over. He spends the year there so apparently he turns 16.
Cole saw the bear looking at him, then went to attack it and even grabbed devil's club, but unexpectedly, the bear jumped on him, and tore his chest open and broke his arm.
In the book Touching Spirit Bear what was the second thing cole eats after being attacked by the spirit bear?
I am really not sure.....but he did eat grass, mice, i think some of his own barf/vomit, worms, insects... I'm not sure of the order sorry! =). At first he ate some grass-choked on it, spit it out, then ate it again. Next he went onto worms, then to bugs like ants, beetles, spiders, and even a fuzz…y caterpillar. Next he ate a small mouse, and then finally some of his own barf-(the fish he had eaten earlier.) ( Full Answer )
They both have so much anger built up inside that they cant realize that they need each other to feel good inside.
He wanted to leave the island by swimming away, but the time he was swimming at was the high tide time, so the more he swam, an imaginary hand would push him back to where he had started.
From the cover picture, he looks Caucasian, lanky with short, blond hair. A well built back and arms, too.
William Matthews is Cole Matthew's father in Touching Spirit Bear. Because he was abused and mistreated as a child, Mr. Matthews passed on the violent behavior by beating Cole. This caused many social and internal problems that later affected Cole. Therefore, he is also blamed for Cole's violent beh…avior. ( Full Answer )
The spirit bear changes Cole because it is not trying to harm Cole he is just protecting himself.
An anger filled young man who commits criminal acts + hurts others to hide his own insecurity.
He doesn't attack him after the first time. Because the first time Spirit Bear attacked him Cole was a threat, later in the book, Cole understands that for Spirit Bear to trust him he can't threaten Spirit Bear.
Because the Spirit Bear can look straight at Cole and is not scared at all. So because of the bear not being scared he vows to kill him.
Cole learns some what from Edwin and Garvey, but he mostly learns from everything he did when he came to the island the second time. Such as carrying the ancestor rock up the hill and rolling it back down. Also when he soaks in the little river. Then he also controls his anger by doing the "anger da…nce" after Garvey and Edwin left the island. ( Full Answer )
idk either but be a good kid if u go to marquette and read it!
He was beaten up by spirit bear. Actually, he was mauled by the spirit bear.
He is scared that he could have died when he got mauled and that's what changed him. He wasn't ready to give up his life yet.
Cole was mad in the beginning because the spirit bear wasnt affraid of him. so he wanted to kill it. the spirit bear was showing self diffence so he attacked cole. Cole realized that he wasnt very important to nature so he kind of changed. Cole saw the spirit bear again while he was almost dead in t…he forest, he spit at it and the spirit bear licked up his spit. At that point the Spirit bear trusted cole and cole trusted the spirit bear. the spirit bear let cole touch him and they were trusting each other.n the spirit bear walked away but cole does see him again later in the book.

Cole is just a self-centered, mean person. He is full of rage and hate and anger.
Because a kid saw him robbing a place. So the kid went and said who was the kid who robbed the place. Cole got mad at him and beat him up for being a snitch.
He burns down his shelter because he thinks his dad paid for it andis angry at his dad.
he learns that life can change instantly, and it can't be controlled(like when the baby bird's tree was struck, but it wasn't expected, and they depened on it,also)
because that was the emotion he's felt the most in the book, atleast halfway through(not sure if he felt it at the moment, though, maybe?)
By having him come to the island and experence the changes in spirit he (Cole) has
that not everthing is afraid of him ,and that he has little power over life
he deals with his rage by: going to a healing session called circle justice and and he has to stay on a isolated island for an year there he gets mauled by a misterious bear that saved his soul
He tells him by having the dance around the fire and talks about the stone and the food chain
he is an abused child who takes out his anger in bullying he beats up a kid named peter driscal he is sent to Alaska for isolation he has an alcoholic mother his dad beats him up he's always in trouble
he throws it in the water because he figure Garvey and Edwin don't need to see it because he shouldn't need to prove the attack
I have read the book, and the Spirit Bear appears in all different parts of the story, which adding them all up, the Spirit Bear appears in the book about 4-7 times total
definitely! When peter had to come to the island, he was acting the way cole acted to him. He was trying to get cole back, just so cole would see how it feels
he expected the bear to be afraid of him, because he thinks everything is afraid of him, when it's actually the other way around
1. Getting mauled by the spirit bear 2. he burned down his supplies and house 3. suffered through a storm 4. he had to search for food ... etc etc - camille good luck (:
Cole from touching spirit bear is the main character in the story, fifteen year old Cole Matthews grows up with an abusive father and a barbie doll mother. Cole's mother never defends herself or her son, against the abusive father.Because of Cole's harsh childhood he has learned to never show fear, …to intimitate people and ultimately punish people when " they deserve it, " as his dad says to him before abuse. Cole has no respect for elders. I suspect this is because he has learned to drown out his fathers hurtful words. Cole has grown up all his life where his elders ( his father,and mother ) are terrible to him. I think Cole expects the same from all adults since he has grown up with two terrible ones. Cole shatters Peter Driscals head into the sidewalk.Because Peter told on him for stealing from a store. Cole is banished to an Alaskin island for one year to understand the depth of the crime he committed, and to respect and become one with nature. ( Full Answer )

When Cole in the book Touching Spirit Bear returns to the island the second time what is he tasked to do?
He was instructed to get his revenge for being humiliated when he was hand cuffed. Cole baked a cake to give to Edwin and Garvey, they devoured Coles cake but little did they know Cole put a deadly lethal mushroom when he was putting the ingredients in.
to have one last stand before "dieing" like he thought he was going to. He wanted to die with dignity.
he decided that the real power was the power to choose, not the power of making others afraid
Well He Had parents Who Didn't Care About Him " He Says ", His Dad Got Drunk And Beat Him,His dad doesn't even know his own birth date.His Mom doesn't care what goes on with him and his father.He Blames the Word For all his Problems.
the reason why he gave cole the Atoow is because he gave him thatbecause he trust himke so he gave him that. and he told cole topast it down to the next person that he will trust
Cole acts as if he was not afraid of the island in the beginning. He starts progressing after he gets mauled and sees the baby sparrows dying. He also feels bad for Peter so he asks Edwin for Peter to come on the island and helps him with his problems. Peter helps Cole draw on his totem and Peter bu…ilds his own totem as well.

The Spirit Bear teaches Cole the most important lesson that no other person could have taught him. The bear teaches him to be patient and to look at the positive things; anger will only hurt him more. This was taught to Cole because when Cole gets angry and attacks the bear, he almost gets crippled …for life, while as when Cole is patient, the bear allows Cole to touch him and Cole feels calm and not afraid.

the small birds irritate cole because hes on the ground helpless while there "mocking" him by being able to move and doing whatever they want. Again while hes on the ground useless unable to move
Some examples of how cole is changing is that he continues to go to the pond and going for a dip. then he also goes carrying his ancestor rock up the hill then rolling his anger away. He is also changing because he feels really bad about peter and wants to help him and when peter comes to the island… with cole he starts to beat cole up. if cole hadn't changed then he would have fought back but instead he didn't which shows that he truly is changing...:) ( Full Answer )
