This penguin unit is packed with reading, writing, math, science, socials studies, and art activities with a penguin theme for a mix of whole class lessons and learning centers.

This download includes everything you need to teach students about the 17 different species of penguins. You have the option of giving students fact sheets/a completed research book, or giving students the blank templates to do their own research. You can compile each student's completed fact sheet into a cute class book. You also have options for integrating your penguin study into your other content areas and creating several unique hallway displays.
