Baby Beluga

YouTube saved the day again.  I was working on a M.A.P. lesson for a third-grade classroom on using details with text about whales. We all know that using details is not the most exciting topic to teach but necessary to get full credit on the test. I remembered a song called "Baby Beluga" and found it in seconds on YouTube. It was fun to tease the students to tell them they would 'have' to listen to the song if they forgot their details since the song is pretty primary. I then told them I personally like the song, so don't tease me about it. After letting them listen to part of the Baby Beluga song, I showed the whale clip below. That was much more their speed. How did we survive without technology?
