Elephant Facts: Babies
Just like with cows, a baby elephant is called a calf. We've learned that elephants are mammals too, and baby elephants drink their mommy's milk. They drink 3 gallons of milk a day! After a few months they will start to eat plants too. Elephants are the world's biggest land animals, so they need to eat a LOT of food! You know what snack elephants really like to eat?? Peanuts! They don't even take them out of the shell first!

Activity: Give the elephants the correct number of peanuts. I found this elephant image and a clipart of a peanut and made up the following worksheet. Eli glued the right number of peanuts onto each elephant's belly.
Activity: Handprint elephants. I made this one up, so they look kind of silly, but it works! After doing one elephant, Eli said the elephant needed a friend, so we made two!
Books:
The Right Number of Elephants by Jeff Sheppard. Our library had this one as one of those huge teacher-sized books, so that was kinda fun to read together on the couch.
Mama Loves Me by Mara Van Fleet
