The second graders have been working on their Whale Unit. They have done many activities in this unit including graphing whale sizes, writing creative stories about their whales, making a “Save the Whales” poster, and writing a short essay about how important it is to protect our oceans.
They also each chose a whale to study and met up with their sixth grade buddies to do some research. One of the special activities of this unit was going on a field trip to MOCHA in Oakland to make a model of their whale.
Each student brought along a parent to help with this project. There were a lot of components to this unit, but as the second graders stated it was so fun! They definitely had a “whale of a time.”
