Students explore whales. In this animal adaptation and whale lesson, students access prior knowledge about whales from previous lessons, then use background knowledge to predict the eating strategies of a baleen whale and a toothed whale. Students mimic the feeding methods of these whales using chopsticks, tongs, and other kitchen utensils as mouths and teeth, removing small items representing food from a bowl of water. Students discuss the efficiency and results of the experience.
