We read Mr Popper's Penguins 2. learn about the height of different varieties of penguins then a group of students draw the correct size on large paper (we have used bulletin board paper so we did not have to tape penguin together) and attached them in a row along a wall, bottom of penguin touching the floor - the students can stand next to each type and compare their height 3. use the type of clay that dries hard and mold a penguin shape - you can stick a paperclip in the head for hanging in classroom or an ornament - then let dry and paint 4. create a calendar with a different penguin fact on each day or a short assignment which has to do with penguins, ex: Name 5 living creatures in Antarctica, etc Hope some of this helps - there are many resources out there, these are a few I like to do starry1 10-27-2007 02:39 PM an art activity: have kids use white crayon to color snow on the white paper...then paint over the white crayon lightly with blue watercolors, add penguin stickers....
