Science and Social Studies: Learning about Penguins: animal Facts 

1. Encourage a discussion and dialogue:  Ask the children what do they know about penguins.  Proceed to discuss some basic facts for young children:
  
  * The penguin is a large water bird with webbed feet that lives in colder regions of the Southern Hemisphere (show in a map or globe).  

  * Penguins have short feathers that grow close together to keep their bodies warm, and only birds have feathers.
  
 * Penguins spend most of their lives in water.

 * They can't fly and instead of wings they have flippers that help them dive and swim fast underwater.
