Penguin Prints

First graders learned all about penguins. They watched a short video to learn all these amazing facts. Penguins eat fish, cannot breathe underwater, but are excellent swimmers, and slide around on the land on their bellies (this is called tobogganing.)

First graders learned about the art of printmaking. Printmaking is the art of making prints, often using printmaking tools. Printmaking can be compared to stamping.

Students used potatoes and sponges to create a print for the body of the penguin. They then used a paintbrush for the other details. They did such a great job!!
