What is a marine mammal, and how are they specially adapted to their life living in the ocean? This video will discuss how animals are designated as marine mammals, as well as dive into classification of marine mammals from otters to sea lions and porpoises to whales. The lesson will conclude with some challenge questions and an opportunity to move outside to measure out lengths of different marine mammals. For this activity, you will need a measuring tape and something to mark each position (sidewalk chalk, post-it, etc.).
