 As we began our study of Antarctica this week, we also decided to study penguins!  After some discussions regarding penguins (what type of vertebrate, where they live, what they eat etc..) we made parts of a penguin books.  We learned that the males have a 'brood pouch' for the egg they hold on their feet for six weeks. 

We also made an emperor penguin and macaroni penguin.  One special emperor penguin had to also have a Valentines heart! 

We also played a game and sang a song about penguins and their eggs.  We took turns holding the eggs on our feet and waddling around.  (Made of felt and stuffing)
"Penguins, penguins, having fun!  Waddling in the winter sun.  Waddling fast and waddling slow.  Waddling to and waddling fro!" (repeat first two lines)
