You guys. I now know A LOT about penguins. 


And now if I ever find myself in front of Alex Trebek I'm hoping the final Jeopardy category is "Birds from the Southern Hemisphere" because I could answer anything.

I have to say the time invested was worth it because the kids have really been motivated learners throughout this unit and it has been great to see them applying their reading and writing strategies in a manner that truly excites them.

Penguin Units are plentiful in classrooms across the country at this time of year, but usually those classrooms fall into the primary category. I'm so proud of this packet because it takes all the fun of those cute black and white little waddlers and kicks it up a few notches with content for bigger kids.

Below are a collection of images that will allow you to peak into my classroom and into the printable packet of materials I used for my 2+ week interdisciplinary penguin unit.

I also created another popular resource focused on penguins. The penguins close reading print and go packet makes it easy to practice close reading skills and complements any penguin unit.

These penguin close read activities will have the students in your classroom reading informational texts, using graphic organizers, and writing research about arctic animals from polar regions. They make lesson plans easy. Use as a fun reading activity or as part of a unit study.
