Published on

This Web Quest was created for Pre-K to second grade students as an ATCP technology project. It is intended that students be able to identify the characteristics of different species of penguins, and present the findings to the class in the form of a Power Point, Kidpix etc. Most important is that students have exposure and experience in learning mathematical concepts using technology.

### What? Did You Say 365 Penguins?

1. 1. Student Page [Teacher Page] What? Did You Say 365 Penguins? Title Introduction A Web Quest for K-2 Grade Mathematics and Language Arts Task Designed by Process Elizabeth Bell Evaluation amiable38@sbcglobal.net and Leslie Skeen Conclusion ljskeen@yahoo.com Credits Based on a template from The WebQuest Page
2. 2. Student Page [Teacher Page] Introduction Hi Students! Title I know that penguins are one of your favorite subjects. And you have been Introduction working on many math concepts, such as Task adding, counting, comparing, factoring, sorting, and patterning. First, I thought Process that you might enjoy reading the story, 365 Penguins by Jean-Luc Fromental. Then, I thought it would be fun to put ourselves in the story. Evaluation Now let’s pretend that you are sitting in your bedroom working on a math Conclusion problem. All of a sudden, your doorbell rings and you have permission to answer the door. You look out of the door but you see no one there. You look down on Credits the doorstep and see a small box with holes all around it. You open it. There is a little penguin chick with a note attached! We have no way of caring for our baby penguin. Please take care of him. It is unsafe for him to travel with us. Sincerely, Mama and Papa Penguin You are asking yourself, what kind of penguin is this? What is does it eat or drink? Where did the penguins come from? What activities do penguins like? Where is the mama and daddy? Why do they have different colored feet? How many more will come?
3. 3. Student Page [Teacher Page] The Task In order for you to learn more about the different penguins that have arrived Title on your doorstep, you will need to work with a partner. You and your partner will spend time reading, researching and gathering data. You will: Introduction Task  Read the book 365 Penguins by by Jean-Luc Fromental.  Gather Penguin facts and make a Penguin Fact book. Process  Create graphs and determine patterns in the number of penguins that marched in a parade. Evaluation  Create graphs and figure out how many fish a penguin caught.  Determine how many times you have to roll one or two dice to help the Conclusion penguins escape from the ice floes.  Create a presentation to explain your mathematical solutions and your Credits research to the class This project will take a whole week. You will read 365 Penguins and complete the various worksheets on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday you will complete the research for your Penguin Fact Book. On Thursday, you will create your presentations for the class. On Friday, you will present your mathematical solutions and the information from your fact books to the class. You will be using the Web to do your research. Materials will be provided to create your fact books and graphs. You may complete your presentations using Kidpix to make a poster or Kidspiration to make an informational web site.
