Product Information


Do you want to know why penguins will risk death to care for their offspring? The Science Unlocked curriculum kit Penguin Parenting is an exploration into parental care for your budding biologist!

In this kit, your student will determine how the behaviors of parents and offspring lead to offspring survival. Students will also use evidence to demonstrate offspring are similar to, yet different from their parents. Along the way, your child will be introduced to measurement and will practice their new skill through a variety of activities. Penguin Parenting comes with a full-color Student Curriculum Workbook and Teacher Guide. An inquiry-based approaches fully engages students in the phenomenon of extreme parenting performed by penguin parents. Step-by-step instructions for all activities allow students independence in their learning, allowing teachers to assist rather than direct learning. Providing over 6 hours of learning and fun, this Wonder level kit is a great way to educate your student in the phenomenon of parental care. In this kit, the student will engage in these fun activities:

  1. Viewing the phenomenon of parental care
  2. Illustrating the needs of penguin chicks
  3. Spending time in nature to observe and understand animal signaling
  4. Search a maze to care for their own offspring
  5. Create creatures to model how offspring obtain traits from their parents

Use the detailed Penguin Parenting student curriculum workbook and teacher guide to answer questions such as:

  • What do offspring need to survive?
  • How do parents care for their offspring?
  • How are offspring similar and different from their parents?
  • How do offspring obtain their needs?
