The humpback whale is one of the largest animals on Earth, growing to lengths of more than 50 feet (16 m) and weights of 40 tons (36 metric tonnes).
The short-beaked common dolphin has a beautiful, distinctive color pattern, with multiple color bands along its sides: dark grey to black on top; light on its belly; yellowish brown and light grey patches on the sides; and a black “mask” connecting the eye to the snout. Adults reach lengths of approximately 7.5-8.5 feet (2-2.5 m) and weights over 440 pounds (200 kilos).
We have added a new section for Virtual Field Trips on FieldTripDirectory.com so that students can experience the fun and enrichment of field trips from the safety of their home computer. Assign a virtual field trip with a follow-up assignment or discussion.
To explore Virtual Field Trips in the Arts, Science, Social Studies, and more, select “Virtual” in the Destinations menu or select your state and search “Virtual Field Trips” using the Activity filter.
