Well, not actual penguins, but our postcards arrived via snail mail all the way from Antartica! We didn’t get a chance to blog about it, but we actually talked with scientist at the south pole through Skype! It was amazing! They answered our questions about the weather, how long they could stay outside, and how they can sleep when it’s light during the night. We also learned there are no penguins at the south pole.
As a fun activity to accompany our Skype, we colored penguins on postcards. Then, Mrs. Moore mailed them in a big envelope to Antartica. They mailed them back to us individually, and now we all have a piece of mail stamped from Antartica! If you’d like to view our artwork, take a look at the Animoto video.
We wrote penguin facts, but they are on our bulletin board. What facts can you share with us?
