My students had fun learning about penguins.  We researched the different breeds and habits using books and the Internet.  They had fun sharing their knowledge of penguin facts by writing a collaborative 'report' and making a Are You Taller than a Penguin? poster for the hallway.  We made penguin crafts -  stencilled penguins and penguin Valentine bags. 

Are you Taller than a Penguin?  The K - 2 kids in our hallway were excited to find out if they were taller than the largest penguin; the Emperor Penguin.  (Most of my kinders were not!)

We cut an oval out of a piece of black paper (folded length-wise) to create both the wings and a stencil for sponge painting a white penguin belly.  Once the paint was dry, the oval was cut along the fold line and glued on as wings, and other penguinish details were added.
I love how cute these little fellas turned out!  The wings are a black oval glued onto the back of the bag.  Everyone was excited about making these to collect their Valentines!
