Goals Participants will be guided through a thematic unit about penguins and shown how the study can be integrated across the curriculum and meet current educational objectives. Books (fiction and non-fiction) will be reviewed. Websites and resources will be explored. Activities and student work will be reviewed. Correlation to Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Math; Next Generation Science Standard; Social Studies Curriculum Frameworks and Technology will be addressed. 2

Why Penguins? Graphic Organizer About Penguins What is the difference between Penguins and Puffins?

Why Penguins? Graphic Organizer About Penguins What is the difference between Penguins and Puffins? Penguins inhabit the Southern hemisphere while puffins range in the Northern hemisphere. Penguins are much larger than puffins in size. Penguins have proportionally small beak to their body, whereas puffins have a large beak in relative to the body size. Puffins shed the colorful outer parts of the beak after breeding period but penguins do not. Penguins are flightless birds, but puffins can fly.

Next Generation Science Standard Grade 1: Structure, Function and Information Processing Disciplinary Core Ideas: LS 1. A: Structure and Function All organisms have external parts. Different animals use their body parts in different ways to see, hear, grasp objects, protect themselves, move from place to place, and seek, find, and take in food, water and air. Male penguins use their beak to find rocks to build a desirable nest to attract females. Criminal Penguin 5

Next Generation Science Standard Grade 1: Structure, Function and Information Processing Disciplinary Core Idea LS 1. D: Information Processing Animals have body parts that capture and convey different kinds of information needed for growth and survival. Animals respond to these inputs with behaviors that help them survive. Kidzone: Facts about Penguins Gibbons, G. Penguins!

Next Generation Science Standard Grade 1: Structure, Function and Information Processing Science and Engineering

Next Generation Science Standard Grade 1: Structure, Function and Information Processing Science and Engineering Practices: Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions Use materials to design a device that solves a specific problem or a solution to a specific problem ? Use material scraps and/or construction paper to design cold weather clothing Build a birdhouse and see what kind of birds are attracted to it. Any other ideas? 7 Use a variety of materials – cloth, paper, plastic, foam, etc. to see which material repels water best.

Next Generation Science Standard Grade 1: Structure, Function and Information Processing Crosscutting Concepts Structure

Next Generation Science Standard Grade 1: Structure, Function and Information Processing Crosscutting Concepts Structure and Function : The shape and stability of structures of natural and designed objects are related to their function(s) Use a variety of building materials to make a model of several bird nests and determine why specific materials might be used by birds – availability, sturdiness, etc. 8
