This orca flip book teaches that orcas or killer whales are mammals that live in all oceans of the world. Students learn about the differences between baby and adult orcas. Students learn about the characteristics of mammals, what orcas eat, and other details. Different writing prompts are available for each grade. First grade students draw and write about how baby and adult orcas are the same and different while 2nd grade students focus on animals in the orca's habitat, and 3rd grade students write about their life cycle.
