This The Emperor Penguin's Egg lesson plan also includes:
Here is a game intended for use at home that could easily be adapted to the school environment. The class reads an informational story about emperor penguins and then they watch a clip from the film, March of the Penguins. They focus on the harshness of the environment and how male penguins protect their eggs by carrying them on their feet. Each child grabs a ball (egg) and attempts to walk across the room balancing it on top of his feet. This game could easily lead into a discussion on adaptive survival traits.
