In this free online program, Academy museum educators brought K-2 students into our African Penguin exhibit!
Students met and learned about the South African Penguin. By observing the penguins in our colony, students learned how penguins are similar to other birds and how their differences help them survive in their environment. Students explored what it is like to be a penguin by waddling and swimming like one, while investigating the habitat in which they live. Finally, students had the chance to ask their questions about penguins to Academy staff while watching the live colony.
This program was designed to be interactive in nature!
Students had the opportunity to ask Academy museum educators, via a chat box about their curiosities regarding penguins, the Academy's colony, and much more.
