Tonight, we've decided to pop some popcorn and watch "Happy Feet." I think the big boys watched this once when it first came out, but of course they did won't mind watching it again!
Don't worry, we read about real penguins this morning and talked about the fact that they don't really sing and dance in real life!! :)
...and just in case you're starting to think there is no real learning going on around here...
We discussed these questions from this website:
- What kind of animals are penguins? birds
- Do penguins fly? no, they can "hop," slide, swim, and waddle
- Are penguins found south or north of the equator? (or more simply for the boys, where do they live?) There are cold-weather penguins and warm-weather penguins, but they always live near a lot of water.
- How long can a penguin hold its breath under water? about 3 minutes (Justus loved this fact, because he always likes to time himself holding his breath under water at swim lessons and in the bath tub.)
- What do penguins eat? fish
