“The Whalemobile” visited the Dawe School! The Whalemobile is a life-sized inflatable whale named Nile, modeled after a real humpback whale that can be seen off the coast of Massachusetts. The inflatable whale was set up in the Dawe School gymnasium, with classes visiting it throughout the 2-day visit. Students could even go inside the inflatable structure to get a look at what a whale’s interior would look like! Students enjoyed getting up close to Nile, going inside, and learning about whales during their time with the Whalemobile.
