Penguin Parade Classroom Activities
Coming for a visit to the Penguin Parade? These resources contain two hands-on in-classroom activities: one to establish students' prior knowledge and to scaffold their visit to the Nature Parks, and one for them to demonstrate what they have learnt and extend on their experience when they get back to the classroom. Written to match level appropriate AusVELS outcomes these hands on activities are a great way to engage your students in their visit to the little penguins.
