I must admit that I’m pretty sad our penguin unit is over 🙁 We have had so much fun reading, learning, watching videos, and researching!!! Here’s a look at the rest of our penguin fun!
I put my students into groups of 2-3 to research penguins. We used these two websites:
along with several nonfiction books to complete our research. I allowed my groups to choose which penguins they wanted to research and present. This definitely helped give them ownership and increased productivity!
Each group had to find out: Penguin Name, Diet, Size, Habitat, and an Interesting Fact. I gave them sticky notes to make their notes 🙂
After they gathered all information needed they worked on drawing/coloring a picture of their penguin. I always love how these turn out!
This was one of my favorites!
I had prepped the materials to make our penguin hats, but ran out of sentence strips (and was too lazy to cut paper!!). So, we just used it for a little penguin reflection 🙂 You can grab that paper HERE.
Next week we will be inferring like crazy with our mystery unit… which will also be tons of fun!!!
