Product Description
*TOP 100 PRODUCT!*

This unit was a true labour of love! I absolutely adore penguins and find them to be the most interesting animals on the planet! My love of penguins has become what I am known for at school! This passion is contagious! If you love penguins as much as I do then this is the unit for you! I have saved you hours of work!

This unit is jam packed {243 pages!} with information and activities – it is basically my hope that you will turn your classroom into a rookery…lol!

I have focused on nonfiction text features in this unit. I have included tons of posters on penguins, penguin information, nonfiction text features, and penguin facts. I have included a full coloured nonfiction text features booklet “Crazy About Penguins” that you can display in your classroom and on your Smart Board. There is a black and white student booklet for your children to complete, as well. Each page in this booklet focuses on a different nonfiction text feature.

The nonfiction text features that I have covered are:
*comparisons
*captions
*cutaways
*photographs
*illustrations
*fact box
*labels
*close-ups
*table of contents
*types of print
*bullets
*sidebar
*heading

There are 17 different types of penguins but for the purpose of this unit I have focused on:
*Emperor penguins
*King penguins
*Macaroni penguins
*Rockhopper penguins
*Gentoo penguins
*Adelie penguins
*Chinstrap penguins
*Fairy penguins

I have included a penguin song book, 2 different poetry activities, an “All About Penguins” booklet and reading comprehension activity, 2 different penguin craftivities, and all the templates for your students to make a penguin research lapbook (2 options available).

Finally, I have included 5 different penguin centers:
*Characteristics of Fiction and Nonfiction
*The Emperor’s Facts and Opinions
*Penguin Tree Map and Booklet
*Colourful Vocabulary
*Penguin, Penguin, What Do You See?

FYI - Whenever I used the Canadian spelling of the word {colour} I duplicated the page to have the US spelling {color) included also. This way everyone is happy!

UPDATED: January 18, 2015 - I had the privilege of vacationing in Australia for 3 weeks in August 2014. I got some amazing photographs of Fairy, King, and Gentoo penguins! I have added 32 pages of pictures for you to enjoy:)

Please have a look at the preview to see everything that I have included!
