We used some books we got from the library last week to get us started...Beluga Whales
National Geo Kids fact card here: Creature Feature Print Out Card - Beluga Whales
National Geo also has a resource here: Beluga Whale
Both Seaworld and Nat Geo have audio of Beluga Whales, 'sea canaries'.
We read, watched video's, mapped migration and mapped location of the whales and had great discussions.
Here's two video's we viewed:
We watched the Eyewitness DVD from the Library on 'Fish'- both salt water and fresh water. The kids both most enjoyed the odd varieties they showcased in the ocean as well as camouflaged species.We then read about the Coral Reef, the book we checked out specifically talks about what happens on the reef with plants and animals in a 24 hour period, documenting each hour.
Our afternoon brought grocery shopping errands and the evening brought dinner of tortalini, salad and bread.
In the night we all settled for a family movie...our son's choice- NEMO. Fitting!
