Decimal & Fraction Equivalents I with African Savanna Elephants


After stomping past a village, African Savanna Elephants caught wind (heard) about decimal and fraction equivalents. Since they are already the largest species of elephant and the biggest terrestrial animal on earth, they decided they also wanted to be one of the smartest. Now they practice decimal & fraction equivalents while they graze on grasses.
