We spent a week learning about elephants in September. The kids really enjoyed it. Gymnast and Karate Kid learned so much about elephants. We measured the height of an elephant on the driveway. Each of the kids layed down and we looked to see how tall they were compared to an elephant. All three of them together are almost as tall as an elephant. We also made an elephant lapbook from http://www.homeschoolshare.com. Karete Kid’s favorite elephant book was Horton Hears a Who, which I had to read over and over and over. I enjoyed reading it every time.
