First grader in Miss Kloczko's class, Elliott, tells us all about whales!
Whales have baleen plates and they eat krill and plankton. They eat them by breathing in water through their mouths. Blue whales are cetaceans, which means mammals that live in the ocean. They are the largest mammal in the world. The Orca whale is a toothed whale that usually eats seals or sometimes penguins. Orca whales are black and white. The Orca whale spyhops, which means when a whale pokes its head out of the water to see what is going on. Whales are not oviparous like penguins, which lay eggs. Whales have babies born alive. Blue whales weigh 200 tons!! I like whales because they are so big.
