Movable animals: Elephant

It’s not always easy to create effective teaching unites in only a few steps. But particularly the first and second graders are easily motivated by creative ideas to tasks including cutting and painting.


The elephant is perfect for the first grade thanks to its simple handling.

Furthermore, the children’s fine motor functions are supported and they also receive a playful introduction into the world of mechanics. By gluing several animals beside each other, you can even perform simple motion studies.
