Penguin Experts

My kindergarten friends have really enjoyed studying Penguins.
 I am so thrilled with the amount of information that they have learned about these unique birds. 

They are true penguin experts!

I love hearing my 5 and 6 year old friends using terms like brood pouch, waddle, barbs, and regurgitate- or discussing their favorite species of penguin. 
(Emporer, Little Blue, Rockhopper, and Macaroni have been the "top picks")

Here are some of the fun things that we did during our Penguin unit:

 We drew penguins ... using help from this site.
These make me SMILE!

We made an anchor chart about penguins that included our schema and new knowledge.

We made a penguin tree map and these ADORABLE penguins from:

We read many, many great non-fiction penguin books to gather information... and then we wrote our own facts. 

We drew penguins in our science notebooks and labeled their body parts. 

Check out my penguin experts sharing their facts here:
