Is it really Winter time if you’re not studying penguins?! I don’t know about you, but I just love these little cuties! So LG and I are spending lots of time learning about them. Check out some of our favorite penguin themed activities! Click on any of the links in this post to learn more about the resources or find additional blog posts!
One of our favorite ways to introduce a new unit is by snuggling up with some books and videos about that topic. These QR codes are a super fun way to learn more about penguins and their life cycle!
Penguin Numbers Comparing
Adding a snack to a school activity always brings out some extra fun! We love this fish cracker comparing activity from our Winter Preschool Math and Literacy Unit!
Penguin Shapes Sensory Bin
How cute are these little guys?! You know I had to include a sensory bin! We love using them for every possible topic, and this shape matching set is perfect with our penguin activities!
Penguin Shapes Hunt
This is another fun penguin-themed sensory bin! For this activity, your little ones will search for penguin shapes in their bin. Then, they’ll trace or cover the matching shape on their recording mat!
I was so excited to find so many adorable penguin-themed books this year! We’re learning lots of fun facts about them, and even reading some funny little stories!
Penguin Construction Paper Crafts
In my opinion, one of the most undervalued craft supply for little ones is construction paper. We LOVE making crafts with it to go along with our Science units! For this craft, we made cute little penguins by cutting out and layering the papers!
Penguin Reading Response Sheets
I’m super excited about this newest resource! I love the idea of being able to practice any reading comprehension skill with ANY book I want to use. So these themed Reading Response sheets make me so happy! This penguin-themed set includes tons of skills, including this character traits response sheet!
I hope this post gave you some fun ideas for studying penguins this Winter!
