How to Identify Individual Elephants - An Activity In Observing Differences

A couple of months ago I shared some information about Elephant Voices. I revisited Elephant Voices this morning after the Google Science Fair Google+ feed shared a link to a good story from National Geographic and Elephant Voices about how researchers identify individual elephants.

In Mara Elephants: Who's Who & Whereabouts offers eight educational modules in which you can learn how researchers identify elephants. In each of the modules you learn about a specific characteristic of elephants that can be used to distinguish them from each other. A series of pictures accompanies each module.

Applications for Education
Mara Elephants: Who's Who & Whereabouts could be the basis for a fun lesson in observation of details. Of course, your students will be learning about elephants along the way too.
