2. Read the novel "Mr. Popper's Penguins" by: Richard and Florence Atwater.

3. Have your students research how a particular penguin looks. For a math lesson, have them make a true to size picture of the penguin. Then, you can do a graphing activity with their results.

4. Take student's pictures with a QuickTake camera and have them glue their picture on the face of a construction paper made penguin.
