A Humpback Whales World

Students participate in an interactive brainstorming activity to discuss their prior knowledge about humpback whales with their classmates. Students plot the migration route of a humpback whale on a map, locate the areas where whales feed, mate and give birth, and compare the features of the humpback’s Hawaiian and Alaskan environments. The whales visit
Hawai‘i in the winter, therefore it is best, if possible, to do this lesson during the period of November to April.
