"Blue" Whales Mystery
From Mrs. Newton:
We just received a wonderful package from our friends at Tussing Elementary in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. This little whale sculpture is made of what most people would consider to be "trash." Yet, when put together, these become treasures that remind us that whales and all living things are depending on us to conquer the huge problem of what to do with trash.
Yours is one of two whales made by Tussing students last fall. I had the honor of delivering the other whale to Diane Shimizu's class at Wilcox Elementary in Lihue on the island of Kaua'i in Hawai'i. Diane's students told me that the whale encouraged them to pick up trash along the beach. We hope to make a big whale with them for their island.
Our question to you: What can you do to help save our friends the whales or to save our own environments?
More from Mrs. Newton's Class:
Your whale from Ohio and the ideas from Hawai'i gave us lots of ideas of how to help the whales and our environment. See the comments page to learn about how we "adopted" 2 Hawaiian whales and about their names, Malama and Kai.
