This is a fun activity to go along with Mr. Popper's Penguins! Whether you are reading it as a class read-aloud, guided reading, or independent reading, this project gives students the chance to be creative and bring the book to life.
The project describes the rookery Captain Cook builds in the Poppers' ice box. It asks the students to build a rookery for their penguin. What sort of things would your penguin like? Would she fill her rookery with (fake) gems, books, or art supplies?
The project also includes a penguin adoption form. The students get to name their penguin, decide its favorite activities, choose foods the penguin enjoys, and become an official penguin pet owner!
If you choose to give penguins to the class, there is a "South Pole Delivery" printable included.
The students can even present their finished rookeries to the class and complete Speaking and Listening standards.
This project is FULLY EDITABLE!
