Along with the cold season, comes the interest and teaching of polar animals, such as penguins and polar bears. This unit focuses on penguins and includes a multitude of activities, centers and printables for the young learner.
This 155-paged unit was carefully made to be visually appealing, engaging, differentiated, and Common Core Aligned. It is directly aligned with Kinder and First Grade Standards, but can easily lend well to be a review for Second Grade. The activities are meant to be mostly an enrichment supplement to your Penguin Units already in place; however, most of the activities can stand alone. Each center activity includes a Student Direction Card that can also be used as a Tub/Envelope Cover.
In this huge unit you will find:
