Whales, dolphins and porpoises (cetaceans) are fascinating animals that have captured our attention for centuries. Through the use of real whale artifacts, hands-on teaching tools, and our magnificent skeletons, students will learn about these amazing animals and discover how closely they are related to humans.
Learning standards will be met as students:
- Compare structures of related species
- Examine adaptations that enable survival in a watery environment
- Listen to audio files and see visual representations of sounds of different cetacean species
- Discuss various ways that students can help protect whales today
