Welcome to the Education Section!

These penguin instructor's guides are for second and fourth grade students. They were developed at UNCW to help teach local elementary school students about some of the penguins of Antarctica. The instructor's guides are complete with seven different hands-on and interactive lessons. These lessons are designed to engage and inform the students. The lesson plans are all aligned with North Carolina Standard Course of Study. Each goal and objective is listed at the beginning of the specific lesson. The goal of these instructor's guides is to provide lessons that integrate science, technology, language, and other elementary subjects.
