Amazing Flying Penguins!

  |   Curriculum   |   No comment

Good Morning!

Looking for a quick visual, virtual science lesson for today?

Did you ever have a chance to watch the fascinating, funny, and at times, heartbreaking film, March of the Penguins? This academy award winning documentary showed in detail the struggle for survival for Emperor penguins in the harsh Antarctic.

I was thrilled this morning to watch a BBC film hosted by British writer and film maker Terry Jones, who discovered a colony  of penguins who do not have to huddle together every harrowing winter just to survive.

Take a look at this amazing footage of this newly discovered colony of penguins.

Wasn’t that something?  Don’t miss this followup video, also by the BBC, which provides the real science lesson!

🙂

Enjoy your day!
