A Tail of Elephants

Teacher Page


Calling all teachers! This WebQuest was designed so that students can learn some background information on elephants as well as their lifestyles. Students learned about captivity and sanctuary and were asked to present information on both. 

Students should work in groups with four students per group. This assignment should take about an hour to complete minus presentation time. 

Once your students finish their projects, you can choose to submit them to the Global Sanctuary for Elephants by sending them to P.O. Box 2426 Brentwood, TN 37024 or by email to kat@globalelephants.org
