As part of our continued study of Antarctica, we have been talking about Penguins.
Here’s a cute little Penguin book I found for beginning readers. I printed out one copy on blue paper for the class. I will be binding it together into a book for the shelf. You can get it at Kindergarten Crayons.
The Seven Penguins of Antarctica
These penguin identification 3-part cards that I made are inspired by jojoebi. This set works pretty well with the Safari Penguins Toob although I had to adapt a few of the penguin models to get a better match!
We’ve been loving this Seven Penguins song by Mr. I & Gary!
Penguins and Their Chicks (Free Printable Download for subscribers)
I made these cards for matching adult penguins with their chicks. The control card shows the adult and chick together. I added an extra control of error on the back with some color coding stickers. You can download my set here.
Parts of a Penguin
These Parts of a Penguin cards are from the Montessori Printshop. The children can color and label their own pictures. I think I will bind the definition cards into a book.
Life Cycle of a Penguin
Here’s a link to this lovely book by Gail Gibbons about penguins (pictured above) – her text and illustrations are always so engaging.
Drawing a Penguin!
The kids LOVE these instructions for drawing a penguin! This is a page from a step-by-step drawing book I found on the bargain shelf at the local book store. Here is a similar tutorial from charcoals.net that you can print out for your own classroom.
I’d love to hear what others have done with their Penguin studies! Please comment below!
