The Tall Neck Giraffe





As part of our zoo unit Spirit learned all about the giraffe.
We visited the San Diego Zoo right in our living room. We
loved looking at all of the giraffes online and enjoyed live
webcams. We created the above giraffe from Busy Bee Crafts
I especially liked that the head of the giraffe is the
outline of Spirits shoe.



Using the fun facts from the San Diego Zoo website
I created this measuring assignment.
The older children enjoyed it just as much as the younger.

Here are the facts I used the photo above is a tad blurry.
A giraffe's feet are the size of a dinner plate—12 inches across
A giraffe's tongue is 18 to 20 inches
His tail can be 8 feet long

We took each of these sizes and measured them with yarn.
Then taped them to the back of our giraffe card labeling
each at the bottom of the card. You can download our
giraffe card in our file4share on the side bar under zoo.

More zoo animals to come.
