Use the kit on its own, or as a pre- or post- activity with a Zoo visit.
Items found in the kit include food samples, elephant tail hair, a replica
tooth, elephant curriculum, posters, books, videos, slides, elephant
biographies, and ultrasound images.
To go along with the Project Elephant Kit, the Zoo created a
multi-disciplinary, elephant focused, curriculum for elementary and
secondary students. This curriculum is best when used with the kit but can
be utilized on its own in your classroom. Activities range from observing
elephant behavior to calculating the height of an elephant to reconstructing
an elephant "skeleton." The curriculum is available at no charge.
