More Penguin Fun!

We finished our All About Penguin books and made a flow map that tells the story of the Emporer Penguin. 

The kids drew the pictures and then we put them in order to make our flow map.

Regurgitation anyone?

These are a few of the pages that are inside our All About Penguins books.

I love how this Little drew his picture.
Notice that he drew a penguin flying and then put a circle around it with a line through it.  
Then he drew a penguin trying to flap his wings and a tear in his eye because he can't fly.
LOVE it!

Just how hard would it be to try to take care of an egg and still move around?
To find out we used  Nerf Jr. Footballs for our penguin eggs.

Then, we had penguin relays to see who could finish the race first.
We found out that it is very difficult to keep the egg from falling when you are trying to walk.


The Littles wrote about it in their journals.
(Sorry!  This picture would not cooperate).

Are you taller, shorter or the same as an emporer penguin?
