So, we had to look up a map of penguins of the world. The map we found (click, here,to view it), was an interactive one, that let the children click on the locations of penguins (in red), to see pictures of the penguins, and view facts about them.
They had such a good time with it, in fact, I thought it would be fun to follow it up with some video footage of live penguins. I Googled around a bit, and found this amazing BBC video. You might have already seen it, as it's from 2008, but somehow we had missed out on the fun.
Of course, about the time the penguins were flying over South America, I realized it was a hoax. But, what a hoax! They really did a good job with the special effects. Naturally, we had to watch the "making of" video, too.
It's just unbelievable, how believable it looks. Now, I'm off to search for some credible penguin footage, from the different locations around the world.
But, in the meantime, you can find more fun with geography, and history, at the Geography and History link-ups, hosted by Children Grow, Children Explore, Children Learn.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
