PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I enjoy using this unit in the spring when most of the holidays are over and I have extra time in my afternoons. This has so many activities that align to common core and your students will absolutely love it!

Pg. 3-7 All About Whales! – a book full of facts and activities to help you learn about whales – copy pages A and B back to back and pages C and D back to back – put pages together – staple in the middle – fold like a book
Pg. 8-10 Let’s Label the Whale! – copy off the label page and cut into four squares – enough for four students – cut the labels out and glue them into the appropriate boxes on the whale paper
Pg. 11-14 How Do They Measure Up? Copy pages A and B back to back – fold hot dog style into a long book – cut the car page in two – enough for two students – cut out the cars and glue them on the lines provided to see how many cars long each whale is in real life
Pg. 15-16 Whale Vocabulary – color and cut out the whale – cut on the dotted lines – cut out the strip – feed the vocabulary strip through the dotted lines – have students test each other on the vocabulary words
Pg. 17-18 Copy pages A and B back to back – have students put and x in the small box to show which of the whales is their favorite – flip the paper over and tell why with details to back your choice up
Pg. 19-23 Wonderful Whale Math! – Copy page A and B back to back and C and D back to back – place together and staple in the middle – fold like a book – use the favorite whale sheet to create a class graph, tally it, fill in the ten frames, group in tens and ones, measure to the closest inch and centimeter, create math sentences with either addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division – write a story to go with the math sentences
Pg. 24-Whales! – a crossword puzzle that tests your knowledge about whales

Pg. 30 -40 Whale Research Project - a research and craft project – copy off the writing pages and have the copy machine put two staples to hold the papers together – you can then put a staple at the top of each circle – the students can cut them out at once and the staple will hold the papers in place – or they can cut them out individually and staple – fill out info on whales by using library books, computers, or print off packets on each whale and highlight important details for the students to help narrow their search – I group the students together by the whale they are researching and put the books and printed packets at their table to share – they can help each other – copy off the patterns onto appropriate colored construction paper – see example on how to glue together- staple the research paper in the middle
Pg. 41-47 A Whale of a Tale – creative writing – pretend you’re a whale or write a story about a whale – copy the writing paper onto blue copy paper – use the writing paper that is appropriate for your age group – copy off the water title page onto blue construction paper and the whale onto black or gray construction paper- use a white crayon for the spout – staple the writing paper, water and back page on the left side of the paper – see example
Pg. 48 Thanks and credits
