CRESLI Library Program

As part of CRESLI's education outreach program, we have developed an exciting library program for children ages six through nine. 
  • This program is designed to explore the various species of whales that live in and around the waters of Long Island.
Program topics include:
  • What is a whale (some main differences between toothed whales and baleen whales);
  • where do they live;
  • what do they eat;
  • how are they affected by humans;
  • and what are people doing to help them? 
The program incorporates the use of video clips, diagrams/ photographs, as well as pieces of baleen, and a microscope as teaching aids to relay concepts and ideas in exciting and understandable ways for young children. 
Hands on activities involve children stretching out ropes to different lengths to represent the length of whale species.  Other activities allow kids to see first-hand how garbage and marine debris harm marine wildlife with a follow-up discussion on what they can do to help.
In addition, each child receives a photo of the flukes of a humpback whale and learns about the process that real scientist use to name and identify individual whales in the wild. Students then have the opportunity to name their own whale fluke using the same method.  The program culminates with a game; whale bingo and each student receiving a CRESLI patch.
Children will learn many interesting facts about whales, and gain a better understanding of our environment and their role as stewards of our coastal ecosystems.
