The Kennedy Center The: Whale Trail

How and where do gray whales migrate and what impediments lie in their way?

In this lesson students will explore the world of gray whales. Gray whales make one of the longest of all mammalian migrations, averaging 10,000-14,000 miles round trip as they travel from the Northern Pacific Ocean to Baja, Mexico. Students will construct a K-W-L chart, work in small collaborative groups, conduct research, and create a mock newscast on the migration of gray whales.
