Today I have spent my homework time by searching the wonderful World Wide Web. I have found the internet to be my best friend when doing homework since my time is so short and there is just a wealth of information out there.
After looking at those two websites, I did a google search for "elephant herd behavior" and came upon some good websites with a wealth of information that talked about how elephants travel in herds and the herds can be up to 100 members. Herds only consist of female and young males. Once a male reaches maturity he goes out on his own to find a breeding herds with a female in heat to mate with. This is just a tidbit of the information I have found.
I then looked for "elephant behavior in zoos" which lead me to a IDA website which was stating its case for elephants to not be held in captivity since they are not able to maintain thier natural behavior and their health deteriates. When I saw the word "captivity," I changed my search words to "elephants in captivity" and found an interesting article that discussed how being held in a zoo affects the elephants both physically and emotionaly.
I think my research questions are still applicable to my project so I have not tweaked them. I have so far used the internet and Inspire to look for my information. I am going to look at my elementary library tomorrow and see what information I can find on our shelves.
