I’m excited to tell you about the new Montessori-Inspired Dolphins and Whales Printable Pack for preschool through elementary from Every Star Is Different!

Dolphin and Whale Nomenclature Cards and Dolphin and Whale Description Cards
I love that the printables from Every Star Is Different are designed for both preschool and elementary levels. Not only do they grow with your child, but they’re great for children of different levels working together.
Here, my 8-year-old granddaughter, Zoey, and 4-year-old grandson, Caleb, are working together with the Dolphin and Whale Nomenclature and Description Cards. There are more dolphins and whales included in the printables than what I show here. I love that the printables are so thorough and well researched! I just put out the ones here that go with the Safari Ltd. Dolphins and Whales TOOB.
I didn’t use these as traditional 4-part cards (I often vary how they’re used). I read parts of the description cards, and Zoey and Caleb matched them to the nomenclature cards. Then they matched the dolphin and whale figures. It was a great activity, and we all learned new information about dolphins and whales!

I would introduce whale anatomy with another page in the book at a different time.
Dolphin and Whale Behaviors Nomenclature Cards and Dolphin and Whale Behaviors Description Cards
It’s fascinating to learn more about dolphin and whale behaviors. I’m simply using this as a matching activity while discussing the behaviors.
Dolphin and Whale Measurement
The printable pack actually has Dolphin and Whale Measurement Estimation Clip Cards. I did the activity with Caleb, so I cut off the estimation/clip card part of the cards and measured a number of well-known dolphins and whales with an extra-long tape measure. Caleb held the end of the tape measure while I measured out how long each of the dolphins and whales are. The photo shows the gray whale measurement at 49 feet, 3 inches. There’s even a blue whale at 95 feet, 1 inch!
There are many more activities in the printable pack! Such a great way to learn about dolphins and whales!
