penguin ideas
Old 10-28-2007, 06:13 AM
 

My penguin unit is in February but penguins are fun all year.
1. 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
