Penguins, 2nd Grade

 These penguins were created by my second graders.  I found the idea  for this lesson on Flickr.  Overall, this lesson was simple. I taught my students how to draw a penguin.   Students then added clothes (such as coats, scarves, or hats).  Next, my students painted everything with tempera paint.  After this, students cut their penguin out and glued it to blue paper.  Lastly, students added snow in the background.
 I think these are adorable!


  1. Great story reading. I would like to read more.

  2. Penguins- nice topic, my children love them. Your idea to add some clothes is really nice. We added just scarfs: http://www.4littleartists.blogspot.com/2013/02/have-you-ever-seen-penguin-wearing.html
