Mrs. Watkin's third grade students at Stinesville have been researching penguins. They reserched Emperor, Rockhopper, and Yellow-eyed penguins just to name a few. The students learned several vocabulary words that go along with penguins: cuddle, frozen, preen, Antarctica, and flippers. We watched some neat video clips on penguins. The students then constructed their own shutter books to hold all their penguin information.
A special shout-out to Nicholas Latimer, Haylie Shoemaker, and Kenzie Jacobs for doing an awesome job on their shutterbooks!
