My Life as an Elk

My Life as an Elk


This is an animated storybook about a newly born elk's first year of life. The story begins with the spring birth of a healthy elk calf and continues through the herd's winter migration. As the story unfolds, students learn about animal behaviors, the differences between antlers and horns, predators, life in the herd, stages of antler growth, competition for mates, the breeding season, and more. There are wonderful illustrations and diagrams throughout. Audio voiceover makes the site particularly relevant for English language learners.
