Working on Whale Research...

The third graders have LOVED learning about whales over the last two weeks. They have been hard at work with their first BIG research project. Each student was assigned a whale, and had to research information about their whale in books and on the internet. Then the students had to organize their information into a cohesive written report. Check out our whale reports in the hallway at open house! Look for our scuba divers, they will lead you to our whales....
