Penguin Study

Penguin Study

As part of their multi-week study, Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School first-graders in Jennifer Meschi’s class showcased their knowledge of penguins through written and visual forms.

Throughout the lesson, the students learned about the 17 types of penguins and wrote nonfiction books about a specific type. They used various sources to complete their research and shared information about how they move, their size and what they look like. Additionally, the students observed penguins via a live webcam.  

The students’ Parade of Penguins, including life-size drawings of penguins, was displayed outside of their classroom and the class enjoyed celebrating their achievements by dressing like penguins on “Penguin Day.”
