  5. 5. EVALUATION o No written evaluation will be given, however, the teacher should ask plenty of questions about the penguins to see if the students understand what has been taught. For example the teacher might ask, “In what conditions can penguins live in? ” Or “who takes care of the baby when it is still in the egg? ” The teacher should also ask about the characteristics of a penguin. 0 Also, a trip to the zoo is a wonderful and engaging way for students to see how penguins act and live. A “keeper talk” is a must for these children— watching the keepers engage with these animals are a great way to learn. The students will see the animals being fed, doing tricks, swim, waddle, and feed their children. Afterwards, more questions can be asked by the teacher and the students can write and draw what they observed when they saw the penguins at the zoo. Navigation Bar
