We are doing a unit on Penguins this week, inspired by a product we are reviewing for the Schoolhouse Review Crew.
My friend e-mailed me a great resource called A to Z Stuff. She thought I would be interested in the Space unit, and I am, but while perusing the site I found a section on Polar animals, including Penguins. It has some amazing resources, lesson plans, and activities. We are using some of them this week.
The site also linked to SeaWorld/Busch Gardens. Did you know that they have entire unit studies on marine life?? There are about 12 different complete lesson plans, that include science, spelling, vocabulary, math, art, and more. And there are lesson plans for different age levels.
I chose the K-3 lesson plans on Penguins, and my entire week of lessons were planned for me. It is some really great stuff! I love it!
If you are doing any marine biology studies, it is certainly worth a look.
