This is a fun little penguin art project that is great on its own or as an addition to a writing project. The students can create this "tear" penguin in ANY size. They look great on bulletin boards and really help set the tone for the New Year. Enjoy this FREEBIE!
I've done all sorts of writing with this craft. One of my favorites is to have the kids write about "If I Were a Penguin" and have them write about what type of penguin they are, how they would look, what they would eat, etc. That way the kiddos are demonstrating what they've learned in regard to penguin science AND building their expository writing skills. :D
I have taught primary for over 15 years. I am passionate about teaching literacy and try to incorporate it into all subject areas whenever possible. I enjoy creating things for the kiddos in my class and sharing those things with you.
