Nandu woke up and opened his eyes. For a few seconds he was
not sure where he was. It seemed to him that he was surrounded
by a forest of big grey tree trunks. He blinked his eyes and looked
around. Oh! There was Amma.
The grey forest that he had imagined he was in, was actually
the legs and trunks of his family members.
The sun was overhead and it
was getting hot. Nani ma
trumpetted – made a loud
sound. Nani ma is the oldest in
this herd of elephants. She
started moving towards the
jungle. The other female
elephants saw her and started
to follow her. Nandu also went
with them.
For the teacher: Mother’s mother is called nani ma. Ask children what they call
their mother’s mother.

Looking Around
When they reached the jungle, the members of the herd
started spreading out. Each member went to eat her favourite
leaves and twigs. After they had eaten, the herd moved towards
the river. The baby elephants enjoyed playing in the water. The
mothers lay down in the water and mud on the river bank.
Find out
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Nandu is only three months old, but he weighs 200 kilograms.
What is your weight?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Can you find out – the weight of how many children like you
will add up to Nandu’s weight?
Do you know that an adult elephant can eat more than 100
kilograms of leaves and twigs in one day? Elephants do not
rest very much. They sleep for only two to four hours in a
day. Elephants love to play with mud and water. The mud
keeps their skin cool. Their big ears also work like fans. The
elephants flap these to keep themselves cool.

Nandu saw his brothers and sisters pulling each other’s tails.
He thought, “I better not go near them. What if they fall on me?
I am still small.” He quietly went and stood near his mother.
Amma gently pushed Nandu towards the water, as if she was
telling him to go and play. Nandu loved to play in the water. His
cousins were already there. Just as he reached near, a strong
fountain of water fell on his head. He got wet. Oh, this was the
work of his naughty cousins. Nandu joined them in the game.

Looking Around
Before sunset, the herd started back towards the jungle. By
then, Nandu was very tired. He settled himself between his
mother’s front legs and fell asleep as he drank her milk.
Like elephants, some other animals also live together in
groups. These animal groups are called herds. Animals in herds
usually move around together, searching for food.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö If you were Nandu, and you lived in a herd, what kind of
things would you do?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö In the elephant herd, the oldest female elephant decides
everything. Who takes decisions in your family?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Make a collage of a herd of elephants in your notebook. For
this, collect as many pictures of elephants that you can. Cut
out the elephants and stick them in the notebook.
You have read about Nandu and the elephant herd. An
elephant herd has mainly females and baby elephants. The
oldest female is the leader of the herd. A herd may have 10
to 12 female elephants and young ones. Male elephants live
in the herd till they are 14–15 years old. Then they leave
their herd and move around alone. Nandu will also leave
his herd when he is that old.
