Whale Lesson Plan

Additional Activities:

1. How many ways can a square be divided into 4 equal parts?

2. Make a whale as a Father’s Day card for a “Whale of a Dad.” Use as name tags for the first day of school (a school of fish) or “Back to School.”
3. Read Whale of a Tale by B. Pearl (PreK-2),  A Thousand Pails of Water by R. Roy, (K-2), Humphrey, The Wayward Whale by E. Callenbach, (K-6) and other stories about fish-like mammals (dolphins, porpoises).
4. Did you know whales sing? Nobody knows for sure, but perhaps they are singing the blues. Listen to Paul Winter’s, “Lullaby from the Great Mother Whale for the Baby Seal Pups,” Concert for the Earth, Live at the United Nations. Younger children will enjoy singing “Baby Beluga” by Raffi in Concert.
5. Adopt a whale. Write for more information or visit their websites.
