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.
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

Penguin Belly Slides
Our school is lucky to have lots of gym equipment. So we set this up on Penguin day. If there’s a way, maybe a Little Tikes slide, that you can make this happen the preschoolers will love it!
These little penguins have lots of heart! Free pattern on Printables!
Paper Plate Penguin
Paint the back of the plates black, fold sides in, then top down. Now add the features. Too cute! Free pattern on Printables!
Another fun penguin activity. Take their shoes off and tickle their toes!
Dictate the children’s answers when you ask…”Where do you think these two are going?”
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.
Live Penguin Camera
Check out these fun books and author’s websites to help your preschool class learn all they can about penguins.
In conclusion let me add that your study of penguins can last as long as the children are interested. We usually go for two weeks.
