Anatomy of a Humpback Whale

Students brainstorm what features a marine mammal needs to survive in a marine environment. They role-play as humpback whales to learn how whales are designed for life in the ocean. Students label the external body features on a diagram of a humpback whale, and create anatomically correct humpback whale models.
