This video segment from Between the Lions is a non-fiction piece about what you would do "if you were a blue whale." The video states that blue whales are not fish, but are mammals -- mammals have mothers who feed their babies milk. Mammals can live on land and in the ocean. Baby blue whales drink 100 gallons of milk a day, and when they get bigger they eat five tons of krill. Blue whales breathe out through blowholes and grow until they're as long as three school buses. Some vocabulary terms used are: mammal, krill, and blowholes. This video segment provides a resource for Text Comprehension, Vocabulary, and Language and Vocabulary Development.
This media asset comes from the Between the Lions episode: "Dear Mr. Blueberry & I Wanna Iguana."
