walrus   http://bit.ly/gMxIx

An incredible video about a mom and baby walrus.   Use it as a lesson about nursing, affection, sisterhood, protection, and so much more!

This video below introduces very unique concepts about these animals.  It is important to talk to children about climate changes, which humans are mostly responsible for, and its effects on animals.

Children sometimes get nervous or anxious and react violently or become agitated.  This is a good video to show that even animals in nature feel that way.  Use it to explain feelings and reactions.

Orca whales

Even though they live in water, whales like dolphins are mammals not fish.  One of the characteristics of mammals is that they breastfeed or nurse. Here is a short video of a baby whale nursing.
