So, as I was expanding my knowledge of animals via the Wild Kratts TV show, I learned there are two categories of whale.
Toothed Whales and Baleen Whales.
aaaaaaaaaand then my brain said "HEY! LISTEN! TOOTHED WHALE PIRATES THAT PREY ON THE PEACEFUL BALEEN WHALE PEOPLE!!!!!!"
and I said "......k"
So this particular crew is made up of a Orca (Killer Whale) Captain, the big guy in the back is a Sperm Whale, and the little guy is a Harbour Porpoise.
I shall shortly be posting a more cartoony,animaly version, since when I told my nephew I was drawing Pirate Whales, this wasn't what he was expecting.

CAUTION BRIGHT COLOURS!!!
This is from the last class I taught.
I drew out a walk cycle of an elk and gave the individual frames to the grade 7s to paint. They were only allowed to use shades of the primary colours (although some colours did get mixed)
I didn't tell them what I was doing with the final pictures. I then showed them this video. Only one kid figured out before the rest it was a walk cycle.
