Asian vs. African Elephant Venn Diagram

I decided to create a Venn diagram to compare and contrast Asian and African elephants. This was also to check for Ben's understanding of the differences between them. We first read through sections of Animal Families: Elephants to learn the differences between the two types of elephants. During our reading, Benjamin also learned where elephants live, what they eat, etc. I was amazed that he retained all of the information after reading and talking about it just that one time. I actually had to read through the book again to create the Venn diagram attributes, but Benjamin knew exactly where each attribute went. I cut the attributes out for him as a modification for his fine motor issues and he glued them in the correct places. If your child writes well, you may want them to write out the attribute in the correct place or maybe cut them out and glue them on by themselves.
