You can also incorporate geography (Where is Antarctica? What is the South Pole?). And you can also just use them to teach your little ones more about our world.
To make this printable more than just a coloring sheet, I added some fun facts. I had a ready source to pull them from…
Last year I added a set of nonfiction emergent readers about penguins to my store. The lowest level of the 4 differentiated readers in the set is a “Shared Reading” booklet. The left side is meant for an adult to read aloud, while the right side has very simple text for the child to read.
So I went back into that reader and pulled five different penguin facts to add to the hats. If you have the readers you can use the hats to go along with them.
These hats stand well on their own as well. Or, you might start with the hats to spark some interest, and then move on to a book.
In addition to the two facts pictured above, the hat also features these other 3 facts:
- The largest penguin is the Emperor penguin. It’s as tall as a kindergartner!
- Penguins can’t fly, but they can swim. On land they can sled on their bellies.
- Penguins huddle together to stay warm. Their feathers and fat layer help them stay warm too.
