The New Bedford Whaling Museum field trip was for students on Green and Blue behavior level. About 14 students attended the field trip from grades 1-12. In going to the museum the students’ got to learn about different types of whales, explore the inside of a whale, “climb” inside a whale heart and walk through a whaling ship. Many students commented on the enjoyment of going through the whaling ship and noting all the things whales were used for. One student said, “Sperm whale oil is the purest of all whales and they actually used whale feces to make perfume. It didn’t smell bad at all, but the thought of it is still gross.”
The students also got to see the harbor and various fishing boats outside of the museum. Overall it was an enjoyment for the students.
