Penguins: Nonfiction

We spent the three days after our Christmas Break learning a little bit about penguins.  We tried making flip books for the first time, and I wanted to share how they turned out.  I think my students did a nice job with them!

For each section, we talked about what we wanted to write.  The sentence(s) we decided upon were then modeled on the SMARTboard with help from students.  Everyone had the same sentences in their flip books.  They were very proud to take their books home on Friday!

Features labeled:  head, eye, body, flipper, feet

Most penguins live in the cold.  Some like warm places.

Penguins eat fish, squid, octopus and krill.  

Baby penguins come from eggs.  They are called chicks.
