To start off our study on polar animals this week, we read a Weekly Reader magazine all about penguins! Before reading, we accessed our prior knowledge of things we already knew about penguins. We were surprised to find out penguins can swim, but cannot fly! A bird that can't fly? We were quite confused until we read how their wings are used as flippers and not as typical bird wings. Interesting!
