Step 1: Each child gets a copy of "elephant parts" page. On the back they glue magazine pieces. To help make the parts stand out, we chose a picture for the body and text for the other parts of the elephant. Stick glue works best. (Elephant parts PDF download coming soon - hopefully soon - I don't think I'm using the easiest way to get a scan in download form on my blog, ho-hum?)Added 6/9/10... Hey - Here it is, I did it:) Here's a PDF copy to download a pattern for the elephant parts, for those of you who want to do this project and don't have the time to have your kids create their own pattern.
This shows the back of the elephant parts page covered with magazine paper.Step 2: Cut out the parts.
Big Thanks to Mr. Eaton's 3/4 grade students, at San Gabriel Elementary!!!!
