World Penguin Day is celebrated on April 25, 2015. To celebrate and share the love for these adorable animals, we decided to create some awareness and fun within the grade 4 Baillie Park classroom.
“It’s practically impossible to look at a penguin and feel angry.” – Joe Moore
The annual northward migration of penguins is on or around April 25th. We learnt some fascinating facts such as the size and weight of the smallest and biggest penguins, where penguins live and what they eat.
Each learner had the opportunity to colour in a picture of their own huggable little friend. The children had a lot of fun decorating and naming their penguins. The pictures were printed on the back of used paper. This is also to keep our Pledge made on Arbor Day as sincere and legitamate as possible.
“I drew mine a bow tie! His name is Charles.” -Hugo.
It was a pleasure working with such optimistic and hopeful young people.
