In this Xpeditions lesson, students learn about the "bubblenet feeding" technique of humpback whales and conduct their own simulation to see how it might look underwater. They discuss why humpbacks might feed in this manner and they draw pictures showing what bubblenet feeding might look like from the Crittercam's viewpoint. Safely worn by wildlife, Crittercams capture video, sound, and other information, giving us rare views of the private lives of animals.
