We created theme words for penguins.
K-1 grades: We labeled a giant penguin.
2-3We filled out a giant chart as a group. We learned about penguin facts such as: name, how they move, their height, how they live, who are the predators are, about their loves and babies, what they eat, and how much they weigh.
I created a large chart then made a smaller one for each of the children. This is a 2nd grader's paper. We did it together. The 4th-5th graders picked their own penguins and filled it in themselves.
Here was an art project for the K-1. It took two days to complete! This is how it began:
This is how it ended up:
On a teacher created penguin chart, we will measure each child against those heights of the penguins.
Create a penguin fact chart from the penguin books.
