Penguin Unit

We have been having an absolute blast doing our penguin unit these past few weeks! WOWZA, we have learned so much! We spent time measuring out the 5 different penguins we learned about. Each student also got to learn 5 different poems about the 6 penguins we researched. After doing all of this they got to each pick one of the penguins, and write about why they wanted to be that penguin and what it is like. When they were finished they got to make that penguin.
When all was done we split into small groups on Monday, and got to create a habitat for each type of penguin. As you can see below some kinds live on a sandy beach instead of the ice cold snow.
