Thar She Blows

This week we researched the differences and similarities between ancient and modern day sperm whales (Thanks KidBiz), and we also revamped our comparing skills with the use of whole numbers and fractions for our place value unit.  So why not keep the ball rolling by comparing life size whales of different species?  The scientists spent the afternoon comparing and contrasting modern sperm whales vs narwhals, studying their traits and how they provide advantages for survival.  We are currently in the mix of creating our own bird and/or fish species and will share these in the weeks to come.
