Hi Delia,

You could  use props like boiling an egg and removing to shell- this is
what a dolphin/whale feels like, you could email the people at whalenet and
ask them to send you information on how to make a plastic whale (full
size!), you could put lard into a plastic bag, punch a hole through middle
so a hand can get inside, place the bag in cold water and have the students
stick their  hands  inside, this will give them an idea of how blubber
works to insulate the whales.

I can send you information about whales in general if you send me your
mailing address.  Otherwise give me some specifics so I can send it by
email.  Good luck with your project, Kim Marshall
