Just a quick entry, last night through Chalk Talk's larremoreteachingtips.blogspot.com
I saw bobbicamacho.com/2011/01/book-project-penguins.html
idea for this project. Among other regularly scheduled items that we are learning about, some students have exhibited a high interest in penguins. I am working on an http://www.animoto.com
presentation with penguin facts for the class. In the meantime,we went ahead and tried these out. They were a big hit with the students! They thought it was clever that they could use their own hands to make penguin feet! This is a great example of how useful ideas you put "out there" can be to a teacher somewhere else! Thank you for the fun idea!
