85 magnificent pages to help you teach about whales! Colored pages, black and white reproducible pages, pages with a picture and name/label, picture pages without names/labels, pages of whale facts on each whale provided in the file and resourceful web site suggestions for teacher or student research..
Print any page in the file twice, for a large, floor version of Memory or Go Fish. Print the smaller cards twice for a table-top version of Memory and Go Fish, or for making individual mini-whale books.
Use the blackline (outline) versions for students to color and make either booklets, a class book, or a display.
Use the colorful page of nine whales and the page of nine factual paragraphs or nine labels as a matching activity in a center.
Integrate math and science:
The information on the fact cards will allow you to compare whale lengths to find the longest and shortest. Compare whale weights to find the heaviest and lightest. Compare life spans to find the type of whale that lives the longest. This information lends itself to making bar graphs, too.
Test your wits and match up whale illustrations to their names and facts.
Use when teaching a unit on whales, ocean units, ecology, environment, habitat, or a Bible Jonah unit. Wouldn't these be fun activities to play during religious children's programs such as Shabbat services or VBS?
Since you can choose colored or black and white, the lesson options for this product are almost endless. See the Preview for a sample of some of the 85 pages in this product.
