Everything here on the Penguin Page will be related to penguins. There’s art, flannel board stories, science activities, and links to cool penguin sites.

Tube Penguin

First lets look at paper towel tube penguins. We don’t use toilet paper tubes because of the yuck factor. Start by cutting paper towel tubes in half. The pattern is posted on the Printables! page

Dictation Penguins

Dictate the children’s answers when you ask…”Where do you think these two are going?”

Science Penguins

Any realistic printed penguin picture will do. Penguins’ feathers don’t let water get to their skin. Rub black crayon hard onto the paper and spray with water. Talk about kid’s observations. After children color very hard with black crayon, spray the penguin with water. Talk about their observations.
