This unit was made to teach my students all about whales. I use this unit in January in my classroom before we take our annual field trip to go whale watching. This unit can be used even if you aren't able to take a whale watching trip. It's a great unit that combines Science, Literacy and Art
By teaching your students all about whales beforehand, they become interested, engage in learning more information and are excited to “spy” things that they’ve learned about while on the boat.
Although the information is not included in this unit, during this time we also learn about all our oceans, other things we may see on the boat (pelicans, seagulls, California Sea Lions, etc.), the parts of a boat, the port and so much more.
Included in this unit:
16 word wall cards
I hope you find this information useful and enjoy teaching all about WHALES in your classroom!
