a whale of a tale science experiment

We are learning about Swimming Creatures in our biology class this year.  This unit's lessons is on cetaceans (whales).  We have been waiting for almost a week to get out and measure the whales to see how they compare to each other.  Yesterday afternoon the temps finally climbed into the 50's so we braved the cool to measure.  The girls are at the sperm whale marker (6o ft).  We also measured the narwhal, beluga, orca, dolphin and porpoise.  When it gets warmer we will measure the blue whale.
LE- I say it was fascinating but we did it outside so it was a very cold experiment.
