Product Information


Take a deep dive into the icy waters of Antarctica to learn about penguins! How do parents keep the penguin unit safe and 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 young learners will enjoy fun penguin science experiments to explore the penguin life cycle and to determine how the behaviors of parents and offspring lead to offspring survival. Students will also use evidence to demonstrate how Emperor Penguin offspring are similar to, yet different from their parents. Along the way, your child will be introduced to STEM activities such as art projects and measurement to practice their fine motor skills.  

Penguin Parenting comes with a full-color Student Curriculum Workbook and Teacher Guide. An inquiry-based approach 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 science activities, lesson plans, 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 science experiments and penguin crafts:

  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. Searching a maze to care for their own offspring
  5. Creating 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 penguin parents care for their offspring?
  • How are offspring similar and different from their parents?
  • How do offspring obtain their needs?

Your kiddos will have fun exploring winter science with the DIY penguin activities in this kit! As they embark on a virtual journey into antarctic regions through several hands-on science projects and sensory play kids activities, they'll learn fun penguin facts such as how penguin's feathers and blubber keep them warm in the winter and what parents and offspring need to survive. Step-by-step instructions offer a tutorial-based learning approach. 

Our Penguin Parenting kit is a part of the Science Unlocked Wonder series and is recommended for grades K-2.
