Whales is one of the big sea creatures that we will be learning about this week, using our Mother Goose Time.
I love this month, it is full of all type of hands on science for the children and half the time they don't even know they are doing science. This is my science.. Biology and Marine Life.
One thing the children found fascinating learning about whales was that they breath just like us. They have lungs, and have to go to the surface to breath. This is the part that really got them though..., whales can hold their breath for anywhere from 20-60 minutes depending on the whale, there have been report that record whale dives close to two hours.
