Welcome to the Eleweb. This site is a resource for teachers interested in developing curriculum which integrates technology with the study of endangered Asian elephants. Using a web site created by The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee, teachers can create lessons and activities that allow students to use the sanctuary's web site directly. Teachers can also use the materials and lessons plans available through the sanctuary's site to develop instructional materials and related lessons and activities. The Eleweb, this site, suggests ways that teachers can integrate use of the Elephant Sanctuary web site.

I encourage you to explore the Elephant Sanctuary web site at www.elephants.com.
