"Elephants" Letter of the Week

   We will be learning about elephants this week.  Elephants are the largest land mammal and have interesting family structures.  Male baby elephants stay with their mothers for up to 16 years and female elephants stay with their family all their lives. There are two species of elephants.  African elephants are bigger and have bigger ears than Asian elephants.  We have three Asian elephants at the Tulsa Zoo. Please ask your child the following questions.  What do elephants eat? What do elephants use their trunks for? What is a group of elephants called? What is a baby elephant called? Where do the two species of elephants live? Would you rather be an African elephant or an Asian elephant? Our letter is “E” and our song is Elephants.  Elephants!  Have long trunks!  Elephants!  Have big feet!  And they are so sweet.  
They stay with their family. Just like me!  They take care of each other and listen to their mother! ©Jen Jones
