Elephants from India

This is one of my favorite lessons to teach! Indian elephants were used long ago to carry members of the royal family. They are still ridden in processions at important festivals and are decorated elaborately! First graders made their beautiful works of art with oil pastel and watercolor paints. A great book to use is Elephant Dance by Theresa Heine.


  1. I will have to check that book out. Very nice!

  2. Oh, I like this too!!! Hey I see you are from Michigan. I have a project called ATC (Artist Trading Cards) that I am working on this year. Check out my blog to see more information. If you think your 4th graders might be interested in a Card trade let me know.
