What’s Up with Whales?

Slide into a whale's world and get a glimpse of what scientists know and what they wonder about. Using STEM protocol students can explore whale migration, associations and evolution. Where do they go, why do they sing, what do they use that enormous brain for?

Written by author and whale researcher Shelley Gill, this interactive digital book contains three Measured Reading levels in both English and Spanish to help readers connect with the right level of challenge in their native language. The text has been measured by The Lexile™ Framework for Reading and its Spanish counterpart El Sistema Lexile™ para Leer, a standard recognized worldwide for evaluating reading ability and text complexity.

At any time, readers can select from a menu one of three reading levels best suited to their abilities, or press Play to hear a narrator read the text in either language. Readers can also explore videos and sound effects, access additional information from touch zones and drop down captions, record themselves reading the story, and more. This book has additional features that promote letter and word recognition and help build beginner reading skills.

Escrito por la escritora e investigadora de ballenas Shelley Gill, este libro digital interactivo contiene tres Niveles de Lectura Calculados tanto en inglés como en español para ayudar a los lectores a conectar con el nivel de estímulo adecuado en su lengua natal.
