GRADE: 6-8, 9-12
SUBJECTS: GEOGRAPHY, NATURAL SCIENCE
Program Description:The majestic elephant has very few natural enemies. This is one of the advantages of being the world’s largest land animal. An animal of such exceptional size, however, also needs exceptional characteristics to deal with problems of gravity, the sun’s burning rays and the need for food. "The Ultimate Guide: Elephants" explains how elephants use their trunks and other physical characteristics to deal with the challenges of their environment. At the same time, it presents evidence suggesting that these intelligent giants have feelings and perhaps even a sense of humor.
