"I think it might be a baby elephant." -Lochie
Pretend play as elephants presented a problem of not enough elephant trunks. There were only two "trunks" and we needed more. What can we use to make elephant trunks? More rubber tubing was found in the school and brought back to the Brown Room for more trunks. Then questions emerged: Can we make the elephant sound? What sound do elephants make? We realized that we didn't know how or why elephants make the sound(s) that they do. We paused at this pondering and decided to listen to elephants vocalizing their sound. (Possible questions for later: What are they saying? What are they communicating?)
