1-Bcetologists have been busy documenting their observations and questions about whales. We began by looking at photographs. As a class we discussed the challenges of taking photographs of whales in the wild. As a result, we decided to use other media to help get a full picture of these magnificent creatures. Our 8th grade volunteers helped the students observe whales through videos.
Using photographs,illustrations, and videos, each student sketched a picture of one of whale in their science notebooks and wrote about their observation. In addition, the students also wrote new questions they have about these amazing animals.
