Learning About Types of Whales

I have to confess that living as far inland as I do, I don’t think much about different types of whales. In my mind, a whale is usually just a whale. But that’s ridiculous when I stop to think about it.

I wouldn’t say a dog is just a dog. Each breed has its own traits and personalities, and while I don’t know if whales have personalities or not, I know that each species has special traits that make it unique.

For example, do you kids know which species of whale is the largest animal to have ever lived? What about the second-largest species of living whales? Do they know which ones can have a foot of blubber beneath their skin or which ones are famous for their songs?
