God Makes the Arctic & Polar Animals: Penguins

Monday, January 29, 2018
This is part of our preschool learning we did at home. It includes ideas that can be used at home to learn about God's creation. *This is intended for home use or preschool (or kindergarten) classes. They are not intended for Bible class.*
We began our study about penguins with these information posters I created. They are two to a page to save printing. They have a real photo and information text easy for preschoolers to understand and hold their interest. Click here to download the posters. 
 I put together notebooks for each person that included each habitat. I added the other animals we would be looking at like farm and pets to the same notebook. These Arctic animal posters were created to be able to see each Arctic animal. I used real photos and put two per page to save ink. Just cut down the middle after printing and they are ready to use. I kept them simple, but tried to find full bodies of the animals in their habitat.  Click here to download. 
I found this ice idea here. I found the penguins on eBay here. They are from Hong Kong, so order early. They loved this! I found the larger arctic animals @ Dollar Tree.
We made this penguin craft here. There are a lot of free penguin crafts. But, I thought they would like using their handprint to create the penguin. Also, I used construction paper instead of the foam.
We used this Arctic Sticker Scene last year and had enough sheets to use again. So, stickers again? Absolutely! They loved it! I cut the sticker sheets in half because there are so many! These are oversized. And, they love making the big picture!
We looked at these books from the library. This means this is what our library had available. If there is not a link, then it was not on Amazon at the time of posting. I suggest looking at your library to see what is available for free and if you love any of the books, then purchase them. Most of these are not really for preschoolers.  
They loved That's Not My Penguin and Rainbow Rob (touch & feel books).
