We are continuing our penguin unit. We read several different books and learned some songs, fingerplays and poems. We learned that penguins are birds that cannot fly, but they swim very well and spend most of their lives in the sea. There are 17 species of penguins. The penguins eat in the ocean. They eat fish, crustaceans (like crab, lobster, shrimp, krill) and squid. We also learned that the Father Emperor Penguin takes care of the egg on his feet. He cuddles it against his fat body, where the egg is safe and warm. So we pretended that we are the Daddy penguin and we are taking care of the egg.
We made macaroni penguins and did some counting activities in math. We loved learning about penguins!
We went to Bixler Park with the preschool class. We had so much fun!
