They are the most common deer in the Western National Parks. Elk or wapiti is the second largest species of deer in the United States, weighing up to about 1300 pounds. Moose are the largest deer in the world and can weigh up to 1800 pounds. Caribou or reindeer are arctic and sub-arctic deer. As kids begin to sort through their photos, they will want to know how many other types there are and may begin to research on the internet-reading for a purpose that meets their needs. When they discover types they are unaccustomed to, and where their habitat lies, they can contact students in another part of the country and, through email, exchange photos and descriptions of the images they have captured. Peers who share their interests provide an outlet for sharing photos, facts and ideas that might even lead to a chosen career field.
