Giraffes

Today we learned about giraffes. We learned:
  1. Giraffes are the tallest animal in the world.
  2. They love to munch on the thorny leaves of the acacia tree.
  3. They have excellent vision that gives them a wide view of the grasslands where they live.
  4. A giraffe's tongue can be up to 21 inches long and can grab and hold onto objects.
  5. Giraffes can go weeks without drinking water. Giraffes get most of the water they need from the plants they eat.
  6. Giraffes make noises that cannot be heard by humans.
  7. Giraffes have two to four short, blunt horns on their head.
  8. No two giraffes have the same pattern of spots.
Then the children did a wonderful job making a giraffe.
