  1. I don't know whether you're a 4th grader, a parent, or a teacher.

    Fourth graders obviously don't need to know about whales as such. But they do need to practice their reading, writing and critical thinking skills. They also need to learn about the world and its inhabitants. Studying whales is as good a subject as any for practicing these skills and learning about ecology, life in the sea, and our fellow creatures on earth.
