stART – Penguin Craft

27 Mar

This week we continued with our Antarctica animal theme. We read the two books we had on penguins.

The first books wan entirely on emperor penguins. The second was about one penguin’s quest to find a million. We did some counting activity with fish crackers as well as used measuring tape to measure and compare our sizes to the size of a penguin.

These we the materials we used for our penguin craft. These are jello container. The bell shape was perfect for this craft.

We started off by filling one container with fish. The boys enjoyed pretending being penguins and eating up fish. We talked about some of the other things that penguins eat.

Then I applied glue to the mouth of the container. The boys placed the other container onto the first one to form the body of the penguin.

Next I cut out flippers, eyes, beaks and feet for them to glue on. Lastly, we squished some white paper into a ball for egg that rest on the penguin’s feet, just like the emperor penguins.

(Looking at the picture now, we probably should have lowered the flippers!)
