My name is Olivia sandelin .I am 7 years old.At the moment me and my class
are studying whales.Can you tell me how large whales move in the ways they
do when they are so heavy?

Dear Olivia,

         Whales are able to move around in the ocean because they float.
Even though they would be heavy on the land, in the water they actually
don't weigh anything, so they can move around easily and gracefully.
