Penguin Height chart {Arctic and Antartica Unit sudy}

During our last unit study on all things cold I came across a cool idea to make life size penguins so the children could "measure" up against them! We looked at some books for a guide and found THIS picture too and got to work drawing some life like penguins! Sophia and Esther helped me paint them and this was the final result!!
 Emperor, King, Gentoo, Chipstrap, African and Fairy

Sapphire loved seeing how "BIG" she was compared to the penguins, Esther found out that she is about the same size as a King Penguin and Hannah, Sophia and Zeke are all taller than an Emperor, though they wouldn't like to actually be standing in a group of them cause they really are pretty big!!

Hannah set to work making up some labels for each one including weight, height and lifespan.
It was a great exercise for our Antarctica study!!
