Description

Class Experience

1. Students will learn facts about the physical characteristics of the Blue Whale such as size, diet, habitat and characteristics. 
2. Students will learn how scientists use these characteristics to compare and classify a species like the Blue Whale. 
3. Students will learn why conservation of Blue Whales is so important and what is being done to prevent the extinction of this species. 
4. Students will learn new vocabulary words related to the study of the Blue Whale and the ocean habitat.
 No homework but your child may be interested in making more drawings or learning more facts about Blue Whales.
