Fun with Penguins

Hi ya’ll! Mrs. Hoffer here!! I just wanted to drop by and share a freebie and some activities for you to do with your students this week!
One of my favorite things to do is talk about blubber!! I take two ziplock bags, turn one inside out. Then put crisco between them. I let the kids dunk their hands in ice water with and without the “blubber” .
We also like to watch the penguins on the SmartBoard. We found a rookery at the
They are so funny and the kids are fascinated!! (This little guy liked the camera and was constantly peeking at it!)

One of their favorites is to see if they are taller or shorter than an Emperor Penguin. I traced a big old penguin on black paper. We keep track with tally marks on the board, on who is taller and who is shorter.

Then I have this freebie over at TeachersPayTeacher. My kids love it too! This is a splash game! The kids draw a card, read or identify the number. If they identify right, they get to keep it. If it is wrong, they have to put it back in the pile. If they draw a splash card, they have to turn all their cards back in!

Well I am off! I have to finish getting ready for tomorrow! See ya soon!!!
