Penguin YouTube Videos and Resources

If you need some penguin videos to help enhance your penguin thematic unit, then this post is for you. I always use short videos as a hook when introducing new content to my students.  Photographs and short video clips engage young children and peak their interest and curiosity.  They love to see the "real thing." So I thought I would share what I found on my search for great content videos on YouTube.  I also added 3 cute video songs along with a link to 2 free online books.  You can sign up by email to received my future updates and blog posts.

This series is one of my favorites. They recently added the "aliens" to explain about nature to their latest video. Not sure if I like that new feature, but the information is great. Click subscribe on their channel because most of the previous ones are around 2 minutes and are perfect introductions to many different animals.


And this one is from Pottery Barn!

This one has a cute song on it along with the video.  The last minute has advertisement for the CD.

If you don't know about SafeShare.TV, check out their site to share safe view videos on YouTube.  It will remove all of the ads and put a gray border around the video to put it in safe view.  Click HERE to see more about SafeShare.TV.

Also, WE GIVE BOOKS is a great resource for online books. Currently, they have these books Emperor Penguins and Penguins: See How They Grow.  Both are excellent nonfiction books to read with your children.

National Geographic Young Explorer has an article in one of their back issues about penguin chicks. Click HERE for the link.

My friend Vanessa Levin at Pre-K Pages has a great Pinterest board with ideas to use in your Penguin theme and winter ideas too.  Click HERE for a link to her Pinterest board. While you are there, be sure and follow her boards.  They are amazing!
