Welcome back to class! Who is excited about the big art contest Ellie and Edmond are having? I am really looking forward to seeing all the great entries! This week our word is all about whales! We’re talking about baleen!
Baleen: a fibrous structure made of keratin* that grows in the upper and lower jaw of baleen whales. Baleen allows these whales to filter water out and keep their prey in. Baleen whales eat tiny animals like krill and plankton. Baleen whales include the Blue Whale, the Gray Whale, the Southern Right Whale and the Humpback Whale.
