In Eric's house there were too many elephants – in the living room, in the kitchen, in the bathroom, even in his bedroom!
Are you tired of the same old cut out and paste activities to complement great children’s stories? Well here’s a fantastic idea that will get your students up and moving to go with the story 'Too Many Elephants in This House' by Ursula Dubosarsky.
Print off as many of the numbered elephants as you need, hide them around the school yard, and then have students find them! As the elephants are found, students mark off the locations on a provided map of their school.
Perfect for both a geography/mapping unit and a literacy unit on the award winning children’s book plus getting the students up and moving! Also ideal for a buddy class activity.
