The students in Phinola Baeza’s class at Winthrop Avenue School were challenged to create and build, using only household items, a tail for Winter following their viewing of the 2011 movie Dolphin Tale. The movie was inspired by the true story of a dolphin, Winter, and the compassionate strangers who helped her following the loss of her tail in a crab trap. Utilizing their imaginations and science and math skills, the students created various tails for Winter.
