Here’s our learning resources from last year’s study for World Elephant Day (Aug. 12), which turned into “Elephant Week” for us! We have studied many animals through the course of our homeschooling career and Elephants has been one of the best.
Back at the beginning of our summer break, J requested that we create a jungle mural on our chalk board wall. We’ve been really slow about getting it finished, but at least we have an elephant.
Elephants happen to be one of our favorite animals and according to Special Days in August ,stilllearningsomethingnewcom/2014/07/27/special-days-in-august-2/ , the 12th is “World Elephant Day”! I’m pretty excited that we are taking some time to study these magnificent creatures.
Below are the resources we’ll be using as we learn about elephants.
