Connect the dots in this penguin dot-to-dot! Draw not one, not two, but five penguins in the icy waters of Antarctica. They’re not all the same sort of penguin either. One is an emperor penguin, three are gentoo penguins (known for being very respectable gentoo-men), and the last one is an African penguin. Now, I realize that these species might not all hang out in the same place in real life, oh well. Maybe they’re all at a Penguin Convention or something. Or maybe they’re all waiting in line for that crazy Metallica concert that they had in Antarctica. (That really happened. Here’s the Guinness World Records article to prove it.)
Interestingly, the Emperor Penguin can live up to 50 years! That’s a long time to sit on a block of ice not doing much of anything. (Still it’s a more interesting life than the Greenland shark, who can live up to 400 years, just swimming and eating. As of the point of this writing, I haven’t created a Greenland shark dot-to-dot, but I do have a nice shark maze you can download. )
It take 340 dots to complete the penguin dot-to-dot. Include it in your classroom library of free time activities for your kids, or as part of a take-home packet about Antarctica. As usual, the answer key is on page two.
