Caring for each other Abbey Fields to benefit seniors, students By Donna Barker

SPRING VALLEY — The St. Bede campus is expanding to include an assisted living and memory care community for senior citizens. Area officials and dignitaries attended a groundbreaking ceremony last week for the new Abbey Fields, a $13 million project to be located on the northwest corner of the St. Bede Academy campus just east of Spring Valley. Once completed next fall, RPM Management will oversee the project. In his comments during the groundbreaking ceremony, RPM Management CEO/President Blair Minton described the new Abbey Fields as an exciting project not only for the city of Spring Valley but also for the entire region. Catering to senior citizens, ages 65 and older, the new facility will consist of 40 assisted living rooms for seniors who may require various levels of assistance with daily living activities like bathing, dressing and transferring. The new center will also have a special secured section of 22 memory care rooms to take care of those seniors who have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or some form of dementia, he said. In giving some background on the project, Minton said the Abbey Fields project has been near and dear to the heart of Dick Janko, of the Janko Financial Group who is partnering on the project with St. Bede and RPM Management. This is something Janko has envisioned for 30 years as a way to help St. Bede Academy and also the senior citizens in the area, Minton said.

What are the chances? Illinois drivers have a 1 in 214 chance of hitting a deer By Donna Barker

PRINCETON — Illinois drivers may breathe a sigh of relief, but not for too long, when it comes to deer/vehicle accidents. According to information released Monday by State Farm Insurance, Illinois has seen a 10 percent decline in the number of deer/vehicle crashes in this past year. Drivers in Illinois now have a 1 in 214 chance

of hitting a deer this year, compared to last year’s 1 in 162 chance. With these latest numbers, Illinois is now ranked as the 32nd most likely state in which to hit a deer, compared to the 30th most likely state last year. On Monday, State Farm spokesperson Chris Mullen said the busiest season for deer accidents is just approaching. About 18 percent of all deer/vehicle accidents typically happen in November, with October and December coming in as the second

Year 167 No. 118

and third busiest months, respectively. On Monday, Bureau County Sheriff John Thompson said he doesn’t think Bureau County is seeing fewer deer/vehicle accidents, but those accidents certainly increase in the fall and winter months. Overall, deer/vehicle accidents may make up about 50 percent of the accidents investigated by his department. In addition to the fall and winter months in general, it appears deer are more mobile in the time just prior and during inclement

A French soiree in the art district Matthew Anderson got a bird’s-eye view atop a set of stilts at Friday evening’s French soiree in Princeton’s North Main Street Art District. Anderson was helping welcome guests to the event. Area merchants invited the public to participate in a stroll through the district, where event-goers found artists, refreshments, extended store hours and more.

PRINCETON — Mobile Meals is celebrating its 42nd year of helping to provide meals for area residents. Pat Anson, director of the Mobile Meals program, said the lunch and evening meals are prepared through Perry Memorial Hospital, seven days a week, 365 days a year, including holidays. According to a recent Mobile Reports report, nearly 13,000 meals were served during the 2011 year. Anson credited the long-time volunteer organization, which began in April 1971, to its founders Shirley Coates and Barbara Mueller through Church Women United, as well as to Perry Memorial Hospital and all the volunteers who have given of their time during the years to deliver meals to Princeton area residents. “As from the beginning, the mainstay of Mobile Meals will be always be the volunteers,” Anson said. “Undeterred by weather or any other difficulty, Mobile Meals volunteers have enabled the meals to be delivered to Princeton and the surrounding area, up to five miles outside of town, almost every day since that first day 42 years ago.” Anson said the only time the volunteers don’t go are when the weather is extreme, and schools are cancelled. For those times, clients are encouraged to always keep a couple cans of soup or frozen meals, she said. As always, Mobile Meals can always use more volunteer drivers and dispatchers, Anson said, adding being part of this service is a rewarding experience. As far as its outreach, Mobile Meals service is available for persons of any age who have a problem shopping for food or preparing the food needed to remain in good health or to regain good health, helping people live satisfactorily in their own homes, she said.

Korean veteran, Raymond Larson of Princeton will be among the men who will be flying out. Larson was in the Army during the Korean War. During the conflict he was in basic training and was also stationed in Texas, where he was part of the First Missile Group and shot V-1 bombers from Germany, which soldiers studied and learned to build. This will be Larson’s first trip ever to the nation’s capitol, and he is looking forward to just taking in the whole experience. “I just want to see it all,” he said. “This is a very big thing in my life. I don’t know what more I could say.” Korean veteran, Glen Rabe of Princeton will also be a passenger on the Honor Flight. For him, this experience will be “extra special” as he gets to fly out with his daughter at his side. Aside from getting to visit the war memorials and air force museum, Rabe will also get to meet up with his grandson and his wife, who live in Washington, D.C. The memorial Rabe is looking forward to seeing most is the Korean War Memorial, which has incorporated machine gun platoon soldier statues. Rabe said this memorial will really hit home for him because he was a squad leader in a machine gun platoon while at war. Regarding coming home from Korea, Rabe explained a lot of veterans faced somewhat of a hardship when they returned. “People didn’t recognize (the war) as much because there wasn’t a standoff,” he said. “We all came home, and that was the end of it.

Applause, applause, applause ... The public is invited to the Welcome Home event on Thursday evening at the Quad Cities International Airport to greet the returning veterans. Participants are encouraged to arrive at the airport about 9:30 p.m., ahead of the 10 p.m. landing. Parking is free for those attending the Welcome Home event. There was a Vietnam War Memorial before there was a Korean War Memorial.” Rabe described Korea as the forgotten war. “It’s wonderful the Honor Flight is now honoring us all. It really makes you cry,” he said. At a recent meeting Rabe attended for the veterans going on the flight, he learned each flight costs $81,000, which is comprised of donated dollars. “It takes about 200 volunteers to get everything up and running,” he said. “It’s a wonderful thing to do. It means a lot of people appreciate what we did.” Rabe said his flight will be a mix of World War II vets, Korean vets and one terminally ill Vietnam vet. Comment on this story at

Area’s only instructor will teach elsewhere Most concealed-carry teachers in Chicagoland By David Giuliani Shaw Media Service

Mobile Meals volunteers (from left) Don May, Becky May, Pat Anson, Ted Harris, Pam Cochran, Carol Gugerty and Marge Laine prepare to deliver another set of meals to people throughout Princeton. Mobile Meals has served the Princeton community for 42 years as an outreach of Church Women United.

Mobile Meals From Page 1 According to the Mobile Meals fact sheet, Perry Memorial Hospital prepares meals which follows the client’s diet as prescribed by their doctor. Each meal is well-balanced and nutritious. A hot meal is served at lunch time and comes with salad and dessert. A sack meal is served at dinner and is equivalent of a sandwich and fruit. Meals are delivered between 11 a.m. and noon.

Deer From Page 1 weather, whether it’s rain or snow, Thompson said. With rain expected on Wednesday, he wouldn’t be surprised to hear of deer/vehicle accidents on Thursday. Looking at preventing deer/vehicle collisions, Thompson said drivers need to remember that deer tend to travel in herds. If a motorist sees one deer, there’s probably another one or more deer coming at them as well. Also, if an impact with a deer seems inevitable, the driver should not try to swerve the vehicle to get out of the way, which can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle and cause greater damage to the vehicle and the people

The cost for the noon meal and supper sack is $6.10 per day. The cost of the noon meal alone is $3.50. To receive the service, people may be referred by a physician, relative, friend, neighbor, Perry Memorial, In-home Care or even by himself/herself. The service may begin and end at any time and be for any length of time. However, Mobile Meals does ask for a minimum of seven days commitment. Also, a 24-hour notice is required to begin.

For more information on the Mobile Meals program, either as a potential client or a volunteer, persons may contact Anson at 815872-2461. In looking at the impact of Mobile Meals for the past 42 years, Anson said Mobile Meals has met a definite need in the community and will continue, with the help of its volunteers, to continue as an outreach for many years to come.

inside it. Instead, the driver should hold the steering wheel steady and use as much braking as possible. Basically, drivers need to use caution, drive defensively and to watch for deer, Thompson said. Also, remember that, even if the driver is able to slow down significantly, the deer may still run into the vehicle, he said. As far as reporting deer accidents to law enforcement, Thompson said the driver needs to report the accident if it appears the damage to the vehicle exceeds $1,500, for insurance purposes. According to State Farm, nationwide numbers are also declining for deer/vehicle accidents. The chances of any single American motorist striking a deer during the next 12 months is 1 in 174, compared with

1 in 167 the year before. State Farm calculated its statistics based on claims data and state licensed driver counts from the Federal Highway Administration. For any Illinois resident thinking about relocating to West Virginia, he/she may want to rethink that decision. For the seventh year in a row, West Virginia has led the 50 states in being the most likely place to have a deer/vehicle accident with a 1 in 41 chance. Montana comes in second with a 1 in 65 chance; Iowa has a 1 in 73 chance; South Dakota, a 1 in 75 chance; and Pennsylvania has a 1 in 77 chance. As in previous years, Hawaii ranks the least likely state in which to hit a deer at 1 in 6,787 drivers. Comment on this story at

The list of Illinois’ registered concealedcarry firearms instructors now consists of 54 people, including three women. More than three-fourths are from Chicago and its suburbs. Only one person in this area is on the state police’s new online registry of instructors, unveiled last week – and he will be teaching elsewhere. Ed Meine, who lives in Lee County’s southeastern corner, said he’ll work as an instructor for a business in the southern part of the state. “I’m not really going to be setting up my own business,” he said. “I won’t be offering any kind of instruction in this area.” So far, Whiteside, Carroll, Ogle and Bureau counties have no concealed-carry instructors. The same goes for Illinois’ Quad Cities. Rockford has only one. Chicago and its suburbs are seen as less friendly to guns, but the metropolitan area claimed 43 of the 54 instructors, as of Sept. 24. The Illinois State Rifle Association, a gun rights advocacy group, expects 1,000 instructors teaching concealed-carry classes, said Richard Pearson, the organization’s executive director. Last year, a federal appellate court gave the state six months

to pass a law allowing concealed carrying of weapons. After months of negotiations, the legislature enacted such a measure, making Illinois the 50th state to permit concealed carry. The state police is in charge of enforcing the law. “They’re going pretty slow,” Pearson said. “I don’t know why exactly. It seems like it should be a faster process than this, but they are also setting up a whole new system. I wish they would go faster.” He estimated the state had 400,000 people who wanted to become concealed-carry permit holders. “If we have only 54 teachers, that’s not enough.” The state police promised to start posting approved curricula on the agency’s website by the end of the month. The applications for permits will be available from the state police beginning Jan. 5. Anyone who wants a permit must successfully complete 16 hours of training from a stateapproved instructor. Ed Croft, a 63-yearold Sterling resident, said he already has a concealed-carry permit in the state of Washington and plans to get one in Illinois, too. “I like concealed carry because you don’t know who has a gun,” he said. “Everyone gets a little politer. The only thing that saddens me is the gun-free zones. In the shooting in the Navy yard, the

Richard Pearson guy wasn’t supposed to have a gun in there. Everyone else was following the law and was unarmed.” He said he has been surprised that Chicagoland instructors are seemingly getting approved faster than those downstate. “It seems a little strange,” he said. “Chicago, the place against guns, has all these approved instructors. I know there are instructors here.” The state police said it has received hundreds of applications for instructors. They are in the process of being approved, said Monique Bond, a state police spokeswoman. As for whether Chicagoland instructors are getting approved faster, Bond said, “There is no distinction in location.” For more information, the Illinois State Police maintains a frequently asked questions page about concealed carry at www.

Abbot Phillip Davey (third from left) addresses assembled guests during last week’s groundbreaking ceremony for the new Abbey Fields assisted living and memory care community, adjacent to the St. Bede Academy campus in rural Spring Valley. Also participating in the ceremony were (from left) Spring Valley Mayor Walt Marini; RPM Management Chief Operating Officer Gracie Nebel; RPM Management President/ CEO Blair Minton; Dick Janko, Janko Financial Group LLC; and Michael-Dean Chorneyko, general contractor of Michael Raymond Construction.

St. Bede From Page 1 Looking at the impact of Abbey Fields on the seniors, Minton said Abbey Fields will provide its residents with their five paramount needs: Safety, security, love, compassion and dignity. What will make this community truly special and nationally recognized will be its tremendous opportunities for keeping residents mentally and emotionally happy, he said. The impact for St. Bede Academy? A percentage of the profits will go back to St. Bede to support the high school

and the ministry they do, Minton said. Another important impact of Abbey Fields is to coordinate relationships between the students of St. Bede and the people who live in Abbey Fields, Minton said. Students will work as volunteers at the community in close arrangement with the senior citizens, which will help the students learn about seniors, what it means to age and what it means to give back to the commu-

nity, Minton said. Also, the seniors will have the opportunity to teach the students about love, compassion and dignity, and about what they’ve learned over 80 or 90 years. In his comments at Thursday’s groundbreaking, Abbot Phillip Davey said those working on the project all share the same vision, which is the mission of caring for each other and caring for people in need. Once completed, the stu-

dents will learn from the seniors and the seniors will learn from the students, with residents possibly becoming like second grandparents to the kids. Following his personal comments, the abbot led the group in a Rite of Blessing over Abbey Fields, saying in part, that the “good work we are beginning here should flow from our sense of mission as followers of Jesus and fill our hearts with gratitude and joy. Whenever we look to serve the needs of our brothers and sisters, we are co-workers with God.” Comment on this story at

On the street

Last week was Banned Books Week. Is there any book you believe should be banned?

“’50 Shades of Grey’ should be from schools because it’s such a distraction to students and people.” Brittany Krohn, Princeton

“No. We should have the freedom to read what we want.” Devon Hedgspeth, Peru

“No. I believe in the freedom of speech.” Brittney Waterhouse, Walnut

“No. If you don’t like it, don’t read it.” Ted Lindenbusch, Princeton

From the editor’s desk I was in Henry County during the weekend working on a story for the Bureau County Republican’s AgMag. It was a beautiful drive, and I couldn’t help but notice how the leaves are beginning to change colors. Many of the trees were already tipped in varying shades of yellow and orange — leaving me to imagine what they will look like in a few weeks. Now is the time to plan a couple of drives through the fall countryside. While the leaves clearly aren’t at their peak yet, why not set aside a future Terri day some weekend to take a leisurely Simon drive. Bureau County and the surrounding areas are some of the prettiest in the state of Illinois. Make sure you reserve some time to enjoy this magnificent masterpiece given to us by Mother Nature! ••• On today’s front page, you probably already read the story about Abbey Fields, a $13 million project to be located on the northwest corner of the St. Bede Academy campus just east of Spring Valley. What an absolutely cool endeavor. I read BCR Senior Staff Writer Donna Barker’s story on the project, and I found myself smiling about the possibilities this will afford not just senior citizens, but also the St. Bede Academy students who will be volunteering at Abbey Fields. Not only is this a great way to raise educational funds for the school, but it will also build awareness, compassion and more. My hat is off to St. Bede and the folks behind this worthwhile project, who are clearly thinking outside of the proverbial box. ••• Every week, I receive quite a bit of mail. Some of the letters contain comments, suggestions and questions from people regarding potential stories, stories we’ve already covered and current events affecting our area. I also get what I like to term “fan mail” and “hate mail” — letters from folks who either like something that I or the newspaper did or on the flip side, letters from folks who didn’t like something that I or the newspaper did. I don’t mind telling you I appreciate both. Constructive criticism is good, and of course, who doesn’t like to get a note or letter from someone who is happy and satisfied! First and foremost, I welcome your correspondence, and it’s important I learn what you think, what you feel and what you believe. But then there’s the flip side of the equation. Mixed in with the aforementioned mail is always an envelope or two from someone who wants to remain anonymous (usually for good reason I’ve come to learn). In other words, I occasionally get letters, notes, newspaper clippings, etc., that are unsigned. With stamps at a premium these days (still a bargain, though), I feel I must tell you what I do when I receive any correspondence ... The first thing I do is look for a signature. If there is no signature, the next step is easy ... I throw it away. That’s right. I don’t read it; I don’t scan it; I don’t even glance at it. It goes immediately into the trash, and I don’t think another thing about it. A little ungracious and grouchy, considering someone took the time to correspond with me? Absolutely not. And here’s why ... My staff and I sign our names to everything we write, without exception. I expect the same courtesy ... without exception. ••• It’s Homecoming Week at St. Bede Academy in Spring Valley! Go Bruins! ••• The new Illinois Valley Living Magazine is on the street. I hope you’ll enjoy it. On the front you’ll see Princeton’s own Kathy O’Malley on the cover, who is our keynote speaker for our upcoming Women of Distinction Award luncheon on Oct. 17. O’Malley is also the co-host of the well-known and much-loved “Kathy and Judy Show” on Chicago’s WGN. I hope you’re planning to attend our Women of Distinction Award Luncheon at Deer Park Country

“No. People should have the right to read whatever. You cross a line when you tell someone they can’t read something.” Jamie Knoll, Henry

Club in Oglesby. The event will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. and finish up around 1:30 p.m. Not only will there be a delicious lunch and much fun delivered by O’Malley, but we’ll also introduce you to our 10 inaugural winners of our Women of Distinction Award. Once you meet them, I know you’ll be able to understand why our judges (from McHenry County) selected these 10 women. Wow! I could go on and on about all 10 of them, but the word “Wow” pretty much sums it up. But the Women of Distinction Award luncheon is far more than just an event honoring these 10 women; the luncheon is about all women who have made a difference in the Illinois Valley, regardless of how great or small. This is a celebration of women and the energy they bring to so many lives. I hope to see all of you there — both men and women, who appreciate the impact women of the Illinois Valley have on us all.

I hope to see you there. ••• Thought for the day: “The hardest arithmetic to

If you have any story ideas, feel free to send me an email at ••• The Honor Flight of the Quad Cities is set to take off Thursday — a wonderful opportunity for our area veterans to visit Washington, D.C., to see the military sites dedicated in their honor. The flight is scheduled to return to the Quad Cities International Airport around 10 p.m. if you’d like to be there and applaud their efforts. ••• It’s a beautiful time of the year. I hope you’ll be able to take a few minutes out of your day and enjoy the outdoors, where the crisp air invites us to appreciate Mother Natures’ beauty. Relax. Breathe. Exhale.

IVCC receives $200,000 from state OGLESBY — Illinois Valley Community College has received $200,000 in state funding it will use for enhancement within the soon-toopen Peter Miller Community Technology Center. The special appropriation, made possible by State Rep. Frank Mautino (D-Spring Valley), pushes the Community Technology Center capital campaign over the $2 million mark, said President Jerry Corcoran. “As I look around this campus, I am amazed at the impact our local legislators have had on its development, particularly Frank and former State Sen. Gary Dahl. Both gentlemen have played key roles in championing new programs, enhancing our facilities, inspiring adult education students to obtain their GEDs and providing the necessary funds to support our veterans,” said Corcoran.

State Representative Frank Mautino (left) helped get IVCC $200,000 in state funding for the Peter Miller Community Technology Center. He is pictured with IVCC President Jerry Corcoran “In the same way community colleges were developed to respond to the needs of the commu-

nities they serve, Frank and Gary have done a phenomenal job over the years of making sure that

IVCC’s needs have been prioritized at the state level. “This special appropriation through the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) to be used in support of the CTC campaign, is the absolute best news one could ever imagine as we approach the Nov. 1 grand opening,” Corcoran said. “Our goal of raising $2.1 million is now well within reach, thanks to this funding made possible by one of our most distinguished alumni, Representative Frank Mautino.” In 2009, Mautino and Dahl were instrumental in helping the college acquire the $22.8 million capital development appropriation that financed 75 percent of the $30.5 million project. Corcoran also credited State Sen. Sue Rezin (R-Morris) for playing a crucial role in securing the $200,000 appropriation.

options currently available.

Soccer: Peoria Christian 1, DePue 0

Little Giants get rare taste of defeat

By Derek Johnson

DEPUE — The DePue Little Giants met Peoria Christian Chargers on the soccer field Saturday morning facing what has been a tough match-up in the past. Despite the recent history of wide-margin losses, DePue came out swinging against the Chargers applying strong offensive pressure for nearly 40 minutes of the first half. The Giants’ eight shot effort didn’t result in any points though, and the Chargers got on the bus with a 1-0 victory as PC goalie Josh Lehman met the challenge with eight saves. DePue senior goalie Hector Villagomez had 14 saves in the 15-shot Charger barrage. “(Peoria Christian) is number one in their region. They have had

a consistent program year in and year out…last year we lost to them nine to nothing, the year before it was eight to nothing, the year before that it was seven to nothing…we normally get slaughtered by that team,” DePue coach Tim Stevens said. “I’m just so happy we came out with the pressure, and we were able to keep up with a high level team.” The Homecoming loss was just the second of the season for the Little Giants, now 10-2. The Chargers took more command in the second half with Josh Kirby netting the lone goal less than eight minutes (32:34) into the second half. Regarding the turn of events Stevens said, “I think that’s what good teams do. They were stacking their numbers up; they had a good

game plan. They found a way to settle the ball. The thing with my team is I put a lot of pressure on them to play the whole game without substitutions so there was a little fatigue there. I still think the defense locked down pretty good.” Most of the Giants’ shots came in the first half of play. “Our midfield got detached, and we weren’t getting numbers forward, so it was like one person against three and that’s not how we are going to be successful. We just need to learn to organize that better,” Stevens said. • The Little Giants continue its homestand with three more games this week with Roanoke-Benson on Tuesday and Normal Calvary Thursday, both at 4:30 p.m., and Indian Creek for Parents Day at 10 a.m. Saturday.

From Page 11 joked and laughed. That’s the way we played the game in those days. We will never forget.” The ‘46 football team outscored its opponents by a whopping 159-7 margin, allowing only one touchdown against Ottawa that season. The 1997-98 Red Devils basketball squad went 32-1 suffering its only loss in the state championship game in Peoria. Many of them had also played in the state championship game in 199697, including all-state guard Shawn Jeppson.

Children will learn about various sports -including: football, basketball, soccer, hockey, and more! Classes will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, beginning Oct. 15.

Former coach Eric Bryant spoke for members of the team. “This was a fun group. Believe it or not they did work hard. I can’t believe some of the things they did in the locker room, but, they were memorable,” he said. Bob Jiles spent 32 years at Hall High School. His most memorable basketball season was 1973-74 when he led the Red Devils to an 18-12 record and berth into the Class A Sweet 16 with a sectional championship. Lou and Lori Guerrini were instrumental in getting Hall its all-weather track from inception, to

planning and securing the needed funds. The Guerrinis thanked the committee and graciously accepted the crowd’s cheers as well. The Meek brothers were standouts in their own right. Harold Meek was a member of the ’46 football team as well as a star player in track, baseball and basketball. Ken Meek was a standout athlete who earned all-state honors in track, baseball, football and basketball from 1948-52. He was the IHSA state champion in the discus his senior year in 1952.

The skin of an elephant is rough and wrinkled. In fact, the creases in the lower part of their legs can be used to tell elephants apart. Like fingerprints, every elephant has its very own crease pattern. Which picture comes next in each pattern below?

Elephants are the largest land animals in the world. But not all elephants are the same. Most scientists divide elephants into two main groups: African elephants and Asian elephants. (Some scientists say that the forest and grassland elephants of Africa are so different that there should be three groups of elephants – Asian and two groups of African. What would you call the different African elephants?) Standards Link: Life Science; students know there is variation among populations.

African elephants are than Asian elephants. They have large ears shaped a little like the continent of . Large ears help keep the elephant on the African plains. African elephants have a sway back and very skin. They also have a rounded head without any big bumps.

Standards Link: Math/Reasoning: Extend simple paterns.

Asian elephants live in . forest areas and they have ears. They also have rounded backs, smoother skin and a high forehead with two “bumps.”













1. The first elephants appeared about 50 million years ago. The first elephant, called Moeritherium (meer-uh-THEER-ee-um), was only about 2 feet tall and had no trunk.

3. Elephant trunks contain bones similar to the human spine.

Standards Link: Life Science; animals have different structures to help them survive.

4. There are more than 100,000 muscles in the trunk, making it very flexible and strong enough to lift whole trees.

ANSWER: #3 is false. There are no bones in an elephant’s trunk.

Standards Link: Life Science: Students know that adaptations in physical structure may improve an animal’s chance for survival; animals have structures that serve different functions in growth, survival and reproduction. Height and weight are for the average male of each species.

One of these statements is false. Which one? (Answer at right.)

Find the words in the puzzle, then in this week’s Kid Scoop stories and activities. S W S E G A P I L L







Standards Link: Letter sequencing. Recognizing identical words. Skim and scan reading. Recall spelling patterns.

Elephant Measure


2. Asian elephants have one small “finger” at the end of their trunks for grasping. African elephants have two “fingers.”


People need animals and animals need people. Look through the newspaper for examples of how people and animals need each other. Standards Link: Life Science/Ecology; students know organisms in an ecosystem can support each other.

Cut several pages of the newspaper into long strips. Use the columns to guide you. Tape the strips together until you have enough to show the height of Asian and African elephants.

Standards Link: Math; students measure using nonstandard units.

Finish this story.
