Class Experience

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