Fun with Penguins

Over the past couple of weeks we have learned all about penguins!  Here is a peek at what we have been up to lately....

We made these penguins for the hallway bulletin board.. You can find these along with a ton of other penguin activities in my "It's a Winter Wonderland of Fun" unit in my TPT store.



We made a tasty penguin treat..



We learned what penguins can/have/are... ignore my handwriting please!!



We learned what penguins eat and what some of the dangers are to penguins...



We labeled the parts of the penguin... Jennifer over at First Grade Blue Skies has a wonderful penguin labeling freebie that my students used to label the parts of a penguin.

 

We read a ton of non-fiction books about  penguins. We wrote penguin facts that we learned from the books. The penguin facts was originally intended to go on the belly of our penguin for the bulletin board...like this little guy...


BUT.... we made them early, early before we actually had learned very much about penguins... so this was the alternate version.....


We made a sweet Cara inspired schema/new learning/misconceptions chart...





And we completed  some other things that I failed to snap a pic of...BOO! :( 


Here is a pinterest inspired project I made over the weekend for my desk.. cute, huh?



That's all I got for tonight sweet friends!
