ELEPHANT ~ FUN FACTS FOR KIDS FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE

Elephant article for kids in English and French giving glory to God as Creator; designed by Paper Gifts for Estefany; ready to print and send; free printable

Elephant free printable article for kids A4    FRENCH ~ Elephant free printable article for kids A4

Elephants – design, features and fun facts just for kids  (Answers in Genesis) Did you know that elephants have the largest nose in the whole world? Since the elephant uses its trunk for numerous reasons, God designed it with over 100,000 muscle units. This powerful tool can uproot trees, dig pits to find water, and even cripple an attacker. It can also perform very gentle tasks like picking up berries and small leaves. Elephants also use their trunks to suck up water and dust. They drink or clean themselves with water. They blow the dust over their backs to protect them from the sun and insects. The elephant’s large ears help cool the animal by providing a wide surface area for heat to escape the body and by fanning its body.

Elephant – more fun facts for kids  (Answers in Genesis) in more detail; The elephant is the largest living land mammal in the world. An elephant has large bones filled with sponge bone instead of marrow, and pads on its feet that absorb the shock from its heavy weight.

Elephant fun facts and a bit of history  (creation.com) The elephant is perfectly designed to deal with its bulky frame and weight, and its highly specialised trunk is one of the marvels of the animal kingdom. This magnificent creature is yet another example of the ingenious design of the Creator.

Elephants mumbo jumbo  (creation.com) more amazing facts about elephants and how God has designed them; Elephants are highly intelligent, use tools, and mourn their dead. They create complex social relationships, exhibit a wide spectrum of emotions, and even imitate human language.

RELATED KINDS ~ MAMMOTHS

Mammoth – Riddle of the Ice Age – article   (creation.com) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; Although the media use mammoths as evolutionary propaganda, they can be properly explained by a biblical worldview. Mammoths are a variety of the elephant kind, created on Day 6. The elephant kind was preserved from extinction by being on board Noah’s Ark. But many of the descendants of the Ark animals, including the mammoths have become extinct. Some mammoth genes have lived on in Nepalese elephants.
