were all connected to whales. Mrs. Rathbone let us borrow some of her treasures and this photo shows the jars of krill along with information from resources. In many Library classes we looked at some books after students had a chance to do hands-on examination of the jars. In some classes we were later able to listen to whale songs and look at a video clip of gray whales migrating.
The Wonder Table was a new idea for this year and I think I've loved it as much as the kids and teachers. The world is full of so many wonderful things and we all like to touch, look, and wonder. That curiosity and wonder continues after the "answer" appears on the Wonder Table. For example, even though I learned the jars contain krill and that it is a major food of baleen whales, I still wonder how the enormous whales can eat enough tiny creatures to stay alive. It's a wonder!
