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

Elephants – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) 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; from scientists who take the Bible seriously.

Elephant – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) 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; from scientists who take the Bible seriously.

Elephant – Designer Trunks  (creation.com) …wanting to come up with a new design of robotic arm that would be safer to operate around people, engineers turned for inspiration to the elephant’s trunk; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Elephant – fun facts  (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; from scientists who take the Bible seriously.

Elephant 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; from scientists who take the Bible seriously.

MAMMOTHS  (RELATED KIND)

Mammoths – article   (creation.com) 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; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

What is the Ice Age – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) During the Ice Age nearly a third of earth was covered by ice, and some places that are now forests were covered with grass. Places that now have grass were frozen deserts.

When was the Ice Age – fun facts for kids  (answersingenesis) The year of Noah’s Flood and the years just after it were the wettest, warmest period in earth history.

A changing world; an unchanging God  (answersingenesis) The Flood rearranged the earth, and then an Ice Age brought a deep chill. Does anything stay the same? Can we count on anything to stay just like it was from year to year? Well, if you look around our planet, the answer is no. Everything here keeps moving and changing. But if you turn to the Bible, you will find something—or Someone—that does not change.

When was the Ice age in Biblical history – article  (answersingenesis) Biblical creationists have not reached a consensus on one Ice Age model. This article represents one view… the Bible sheds light that puts our world into perspective, including the Ice Age. When did the ice age begin and end; geological facts; what were people doing during and how did they survive; mammoths; from scientists who take the Bible seriously

What started the ice age? – article  (answersingenesis) Transporting enough ice and snow to cover the continents is impossible under current climate conditions. The only viable scientific model would require a unique catastrophe—like the breakup of the earth’s crust during the flood—to energize this ice machine… Simulations confirm that warm oceans after the Genesis Flood caused intense evaporation and snow and ice storms during a single Ice Age of short duration. If we use God’s Word as our starting point, we do not need to rely on unknown mechanisms that require hundreds of thousands of years. In fact, there is no scientific justification for those models. Instead, the Bible gives us the big picture that helps make sense of our world; from a professor of atmospheric science who takes the Bible seriously

Why were many extinct animals so big?  (answersingenesis) When you think of the Ice Age, you think of big critters like the woolly mammoth… Something about being big impresses us. An ordinary beaver: no big deal. But an eight-foot-long beaver: now that’s impressive!

What happened to the woolly mammoths – article  (creation.com) from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Mammoth – colouring  (answersingenesis) mammoths, dinosaurs and dodos leaving Noah’s Ark with their knapsacks over their shoulders and discussing extinction, with a rainbow and mountains in the background; free printable

Need another smile today? Watch Nikki, the elephant giving birth to cute little Riski… and then forcing the little one to breathe and prodding it reluctantly to its feet. This is very important as the baby elephant is extremely vulnerable in the wild until it is able to stand; an amazing and beautiful video that has had over 29 million hits.

Elephant Duet  one elephant jams along on the piano to the music of ‘Baby Elephant Walk’ while another elephant dances

Peter the elephant plays a piano duet  while playfully(?) teasing his human companion… or are those just smacking big elephant kisses?
