Penguin Unit Study- (Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten)

Penguin Unit Study for Toddlers, Preschool, and kindergarten!

This Month of December we studied Penguins! we learned everything we could about penguins by checking out books from our local library, doing arts and crafts and printables about penguins, watching documentaries about penguins and even visiting a local zoo to see them close up in person! Here are some some of the things we did:

Learned about Penguin Facts.  Every day  I read one of these fact cards to the kids. Penguins are very interesting we loved learning all the facts.

You will need two paper plates. Take one and draw what you see above. This will be the flippers, feet, head and bill.

Cut out the pieces. I labeled them with color names so that Jade would know what to color each part.

One thought on “Penguin Unit Study- (Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten)

  1. We love animal unit studies. My daughter gets so into them she even told me she is going to be a scientist and swim with sting rays so she can make books for people at the science center. That was an unprovoked thought … it almost made me cry 🙂
