Non-Chronological Reports

Whale Reports

Whales journey throughout all of the world’s oceans, communicating with complex and mysterious sounds. Their sheer size amazes us: the blue whale can reach lengths of more than 100 feet and weigh up to 200 tons—as much as 33 elephants.

Despite living in the water, whales breathe air. And like humans, they are warm-blooded mammals who nurse their young. A thick layer of fat called blubber insulates them from cold ocean waters.

Some whales are known as baleen whales. These include blue, right, bowhead, sei and gray whales. This refers to the fact that they have special bristle-like structures in their mouths (called baleen) that strains food from the water. Other whales, such as beluga or sperm whales, have teeth.

A great opportunity for your Foundation children to learn about non-chronological reports and whales. There are two types of whales (baleen and toothed) but many different species of whales for the children to learn about and research. The children love learning about whales and it captivates both boys and girls. To download the Powerpoint Click Here. To download the whale fact sheets Click Here.
