This is a very special time of the year off of the Georgia Coast. The pregnant right whales return to our warm waters to give birth and nurse their young. The young whale born in 1996 off the GA coast named Smoke just returned with a calf! Check out the article from Savannah Now: http://savannahnow.com/news/2015-01-28/tybees-whale-gives-birth. We celebrated whales with songs, games, baleen activities and a fun craft.
I made a game on the app Tiny Tap that we played learning about parts of whales:
Which whale has baleen?
We used paint brushes and tried to sweep up some colored rice (krill) in a water bucket.
At the end of the program we made our own puffy whale to remember the whales by.
