NW Marine Mammals on Summer Learning Menu
This year’s Summer school Enrichment Program is focusing on Pacific Northwest Marine Mammals. Students will be learning about Cetaceans (whales), Mustelids (otters), and Pinnipeds (seals). Some of the first week’s whale lessons included which whales are found in our area (gray whales, minke whales, orcas, and harbor porpoises). In addition to being able to identify the types of whales, the students learned the differences between baleen whales and toothed whales. Students also have learned that we have 3 pods of orcas that are native to our area: J, K, and L pods. Each pod has specific calls that they use to communicate with each other.
The second week of summer school will focus on the two types of otters and seals found in our area. Younger students will be creating a mobile of all the Pacific Northwest Mammals they learned about, while the older students will be making a storybook in the high school computer lab that they will share with the younger students! The final week will focus on other Pacific Northwest animals that the mammals rely upon for their survival. This program has been fun, inspirational, and educational for the students and the teachers!
