Elephants swimming and the World’s Greatest Elephant

Grade 1-5 students this week have read the (long) and incredible story of The World’s Greatest Elephant written by Ralph Helfer and illustrated by Ted Lewin. This amazing story of friendship between a boy and an elephant, through unbelievably difficult circumstances, is an inspiring story of commitment!

Before reading the book we watched a short clip of an elephant swimming, as the elephant Modoc did in the story after the shipwreck. You can watch the video clip here:
