Penguin Power

After spending an entire unit studying the lives of penguins, first-grade students from Academy Street Elementary School invited their family members to the school to celebrate their annual “Black and White Day” event.

The students were excited to show their special guests what they had learned about the highly interesting birds, as they showcased the numerous art projects and activity sheets they completed while working on the unit. The students classified the many different species of penguin, and even wrote a fact sheet devoted to the penguin of their choosing, naming their habitats, predators and some additional fun facts. 

Additionally, the students created penguin shaped hats which were worn during the special day, and placed all of their penguin-related research in special folders titled “All About Penguins.”
