Penguins Marching Into Your Classroom

Penguins Marching Into Your Classroom

Follow Adelie penguins as they raise their chicks on Ross Island, Antarctica.  Photos are uploaded daily from selected nests during the breeding season of  Nov - Feb.  Students keep a field notebook with observations, data and reflections using photos and stories about penguin biology, adaptations, behavior, and how they are coping with global climate change. Classrooms can communicate with the researcher over the internet during that time, asking questions and requesting information. Have your students receive a postcard from this icy continent.  All photos and student questions are archived.

Fun for students to be able to request information and learn about the penguin life cycle.
