Whales and Bioluminescence
This cluster is a double Motivator Map special because of the children's book "Whale Shines" and its whale lead character. All day, Whale swims through the ocean seeing his friends’ confidence and creativity and wishes he could be an artist too, but he does not know what to make. Then one day, with the unexpected help of some bio-luminescent plankton, he discovers his own distinct point of view and talent. The cluster includes references to this book but also to the real-world expert Dr. Carole Baldwin of the National Museum of Natural History. For one price, download two Motivator Maps, Teaching Assistant Wally Whale teaching about whales, extra PDF pages of support and even a power point with embedded videos. It is a large packet to help activate this exciting topic...and do not forget how much fun it is to record youth waving blue glow sticks to music as they dive deep.
