This mini unit is a great way to add to your unit on penguins. I have been using it with my grade 1's for years and they just love it.
We start with the KWL chart, compiling a list of things we already know about penguins, together with what we hope to learn.
The students then brainstorm a list of things that penguins can, have and are. They then complete a writing activity about what they have learned about penguins, taking their can, have and are statements and transforming then into their most creative written work.
I hope your kids enjoy this as much as mine do!
