If I Had an Elephant

NMNS, January 7, 2018 - Everyone knows that kids love animals. Having a pet is entertaining and gives kids the responsibilities. It can also positively affect kids in a much more profound way, e.g. their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and language development can all be encouraged by interaction with the family pet. Most of all, kids will develop valuable skills and obtain priceless knowledge that help them become more aware of animal behavior, care and conservation.

What: This winter school vacation the Museum will offer a fun, challenging, and mind-blowing experience for kids 5 to 8 years of age who are interested in elephants. This 2-morning ‘If I Had an Elephant’ Camp builds confidence, creativity, imagination and skills of self-expression, communication. Campers will explore the current exhibition “Elephants: Evolution and Tragedy of the Land Mighty” to discover the biggest land animals and learn about amazing and fun facts about them through the accompanying children’s picture book “Learning about Elephants by Numbers”. In the end, using the knowledge about elephants they’ve learned, kids will create their own pop-up storybooks to tell how they would care for their elephant if they had an elephant. With the Exhibition curator and Book writer Dr. Chang Chun-hsiang!
