March of the Penguins - A Fun Learnig Tool

Everyone loves penguins. And now, everyone has a chance to see how penguins live in the highly entertaining documentary March of the Penguins. No need to tell the kids it's educational.

Beyond just taking your kids to see the show, there are lots of fun activities you can do before and after the presentation to enhance your enjoyment of the film.

Learn more about the penguins and the land in which they live at the movie's web site. There you can find a Kids Activity Guide, a National Geographic Activity Guide and coloring pages. You can also hear to sounds of the penguins and watch video clips.

At the National Geographic web site, you can observe penguins and other arctic creatures via the critter cam or learn more fun facts about penguins at the creature feature page.

Another great source of penguin information and activities is the teacher guides at the Sea World web site. Sea World is dedicated to educating the public about the animals they house at their parks and they spend a lot of time and effort developing educational materials to make that happen.

By visiting the teacher's area, you have access to numerous teacher guides in downloadable PDF format. Two guides are offered covering the topic of Arctic Animals, one for grades K through 3, the other for grades 4 through 8. The guides are filled with informative worksheet and coloring pages.

With their adorable waddle and ever-present tuxedo, Penguins are such likeable creatures. Expand your child's knowledge of these amazing animals by checking out these fun learning tools either before or after the show.

Caren Bugay has lots of tips and resources to enhance your child's education. Find more great ideas at http://www.helpyourkidslearn.blogspot.com
