Penguins & Antarctica You Can Do

I've recently gotten hooked on a new podcast by Matt Miller [you might know him as #JimmyMatt]. This podcast is great because not only does it share amazing tips & ideas, it's done in less than 10 minutes! I listen while I'm packing my lunch in the morning and eating breakfast (it's probably the only time I'm successful in multi-tasking!). I also keep a notepad handy to jot down tips & ideas.

I listened to Episode #23: Introduce your students to penguins & Antarctica this week and was SUPER excited! Genny Kahlweiss was Matt's guest and she shared the website This site is REALLY, REALLY awesome! It's packed with real research and so much more.  

You won't regret checking it out. 

I know of several teachers who study penguins and this would be a perfect addition. There is an education page in this site where you can take your class beyond the 4 walls. The education tab is packed with resources, activities, and projects. 

You can do anything from:
  • sending a flag to the researchers - who will fly it & send it back! (probably my personal FAV!)
  • to helping count Weddell seals
  • checking out the baby chicks as they nest (from Nov-Jan)
  • learning about adaptations
  • and more!

It's a great addition to any classroom!

You can find the podcast on any of the numerous podcasting apps as well as at
