Mrs. Beydoun’s Indian Elephants

The second grade artists in Mrs. Beydoun’s class have been studying the country of India in their classroom. ┬áIn the art room, artists looked at the elephants from India and how they are decorated during festivals and holidays. We learned how the elephant can represent wisdom in India and that elephants have very good memories!
