Winter Learning Journey: Day 4 | Activity 1

For the first activity of day 4 for the Winter Learning Journey, I learnt about the recent whales that were beached (Swam to the shore and got stuck). Our activity was to visit a site that talked about what happened, and on our blogs we had to describe what people did and saw.

People could see so many whales all across the shore, birds all around them, and many people trying to save them. It's said it was "like a grave yard with 300 dead whales". A lot of the whales were bleeding, and running out of water to keep them from becoming dead. People tried to save them by poring water over them and their blowholes.


  1. Hi Jack. I like how you have explained what happened to the beached whales. You also needed to write a list of what locals did to try and save them. Hopefully what locals are doing is enough to save them. Keep up the amazing work.

  2. Hello Jack
    Great job on this activity. I like how you added a bit about the scene after most of the unlucky whales died. I guess it would smell really bad with their corpses lying in the baking sun. Well done.

  3. Hi Jack
    It's sad that the whales died. I like how you explained what beached means. Do you think that the whales were beached intentionally or accidentally?
    Great work

  4. Hello Jack, it is really sad how lots of whales died but it is really good the people in the community are trying to save them. Great job!
