The Final Projects
The students from Pomaika’i Elementary School in Maui and Harborview Elementary School in Juneau, Alaska spent 5 months researching humpback whales, which included speakers from the scientific community coming to their classrooms, reading, writing stories and journaling about what they learned, blogging with each other, writing and producing plays and DVD’s of their work, and creating a traveling artistic mural of their journey.
Here we share with you some of their hard work and efforts during 2008-2009.
Below are DVD movies that some of the students made during their semester long journey to study whales.
