Marine Mammal Lab
Grades 2-3

Science Field Trip 1 hour

In this program, the book The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler will be used to explore fact and fiction about whales. Students use microscopes to look at plankton and krill as they explore the diets of marine mammals, sort mammal and non-mammal artifacts, listen to sounds of whales, and look at fascinating whale “hitchhikers.”
