The Giraffe That Walked To Paris
We recently finished up The Giraffe That Walked To Paris. This book is out of print, but there are some similar books on the same topic if you can't get your hands on it.
Most of Jack's notebook items came from Homeschool Share.
I found this map which was great for charting the giraffe's trip across the Mediterranean Sea!
This was one of the books covering the same story that we read. The facts were the same, but we decided we liked the way The Giraffe That Walked To Paris told the story better because there was more detail.
To wrap up our week, we went to see the giraffes at the zoo. We just happened to arrive at their area at the time the keeper talk was starting--totally not planned! We got to see them get their treats and we talked to the zookeeper a bit.
Here you can see the difference between male (left) and female (right) ossicones.
