We did do a super fun blubber experiment...we got the idea from www.briebrieblooms.com and modified how we made the blubber bag a tad. The kids were super thrilled and amazed when they learned how warm their hands were in the ice water with the blubber packet.
The kids also used whale pictures below to guess which whales were baleen and which ones were toothed.
The Awesome teachers we are would stretch out our tape measure to show various average whale lengths and then the kids had to team up to match with their strings to get those same lengths. So if we measured an orca that averaged 30 feet, then 3 kids would have to match up their 10 ft. strings. Here are some of the whales we measured out:
They also got to put in a big whale sticker to go along with it (see the sticker link below...we love these stickers).
Below is a pic of the string stapled into the folders with a description of the various
whale lengths we measured outside!
