Wild Whale Classification

This Wild Whale Classification lesson plan also includes:

Did you know you can classify whales into two major categories; whales with teeth and whales with baleen? Audio recordings of a whale song kicks off the lesson, as learners examine the similarities and differences they see in a set of whale images. They discuss how a whale survives and that there are two different types of whales, those with teeth and those with baleen. In pairs, they examine their whale cards and determine which part of the whale chart their whale card belongs to, they orally describe their reasoning and then work independently to complete a Venn diagram.
