A few of the questions that we will explore through this class: Why can penguins not fly? What do they eat? What eats them? Where do they live? How many different kinds of penguins are there and how big are they really? And so much more. I will use visual aids and pictures via powerpoint as well as videos through youtube to present the lesson. Most of the powerpoint slides have a quick drawing prompt that I will direct the learners through. Each learner will be making their own penguin...
Students will improve their basic knowledge of penguins. They will also get the opportunity to improve their listening skills, following directions, fine motor skills and preliminary skills needed for better writing and drawing.
For my entire life, I wanted to be a veterinarian. I read countless animal books and magazines about animals and nature (national geographic, zoo books, fiction and nonfiction), and I still enjoy watching documentaries through netflix and amazon in my free time. We live in an incredible world full of amazing creatures, and I love to share my excitement about it all! I have taught this class several times, and previous learners (and their parents) have provided questions and suggestions to better this class even more for future learners!
Learners may want to continue coloring and adding details to their picture after the class has been concluded.
Paper - can be white printer paper or lined notebook paper Pencil or other writing utensil, I will be using a black marker Crayons (or other coloring utensils, markers are just fine)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There are several questions that are asked throughout the lesson to maintain engagement, and learners will get the chance to share what they drew (and learned) about their penguin at the end of the class.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Penguin parents feed their babies by vomiting into their mouths (regurgitation). There is a picture depicting this, and we will talk about it. Sensitive stomachs may not appreciate this. There are also a few pictures of penguins eating fish and squid. There is no blood or gore shown in these pictures. Leopard Seals are a natural predator of penguins. There is a picture in the powerpoint that shows a leopard seal chasing a penguin, but learners will be encouraged to imagine that the penguin managed to escape.
