We've changed our nature table into a whale exploration area! When I don't want to purchase any new materials I turn to my printer. I've printed out some excellent resources to help the boys make sense of their whale watching adventure. I want them to learn from the materials, to find out the answers themselves.
Otis collected his model whales and the globe. I collected all of our printed materials and some pictures. We put a basket of whale-themed books next to the table.
A migratory map with our globe.
Parts of a whale (baleen) cards. The descriptions of each part is on the back of the card.
Photographs of whale behavior. The description of each behavior is on the back of the photograph.
This was fun... working with Otis with some moveable alphabet letters. This was his first attempt!
I love this illustrated canvas.
