We learned all about whales this week…here is our learning board for the week:
Whales Passing by Eve Bunting. In this story a boy and his father stand on a cliff watching whales go by and wondering all about them and imagining what the whales are saying as they swim by. We enjoyed this book with fun pictures of orcas and a good mix of story and information.
Whale by David Lucas. This is a fun book about a whale that washes up on top of a young boy’s town! The whale thinks he’s done for but the town bands together to figure out how to get him back in the ocean, and then the whale enlists the help of his ocean friends to help repair the town.
Baby Whale’s Journey by Jonathan London. This book tells the story of a baby sperm whale’s birth and young life. It has wonderful illustrations and lots of information presented in a poetic way. There’s also a reader’s guide at the end of the book with great before, during, and after discussion questions.
Verse: “Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” Psalm 100:2
