Sharks!

Today we started learning about sharks! They can’t breathe if they stop swimming, they can smell blood, and their teeth are actually modified fish scales! They’re also hunted in huge numbers for their fins, which is so sad 🙁

Orcas

L79,

We’ve spent the last few days studying the orca, the largest member of the dolphin family. They have a strong family bond, with the children staying with the mothers their entire lives. They travel in large pods and we have a lot of evidence to suggest they have their own languages.
