Stories from Africa

Students discuss the size of adult African elephants after a demonstration on their height. They try to guess the animal of discussion based on clues given about their size and characteristics. As a class, they try to identify other items around the classroom or school that are as tall as the African elephant. Afterward they compare the size of the adult elephant to a newborn.
