Walruses are giants of the sea. It was so interesting to learn all about them, they use those big tusks to pull themselves along thru the ice and snow. And a walrus can weigh as much as 2 tons! We had fun learning all about the walrus and the letter Ww.

The widdly, waddly walrus
has flippery, floppery feet.
He dives in the ocean for dinner
and stands on his noggin to eat.
The wrinkly, crinkly walrus
swims with a debonair splash.
His elegant tusks are of ivory
and he wears a fine walrus mustache.
The thundery, blundery walrus
has a rubbery, blubbery hide.
He puffs up his neck when it’s bedtime
and floats fast asleep in the tide.
After adding hand print flippers and tusks, the walrus is complete! Although our walruses kind of look like they have been on a diet, they could have been a little bit chubbier!
