09.02.21 Penguins and learn ice (冰) and white (白)
As we are lucky to have the snow again today, we continue our exploration of things in cold places..like penguins!
First we watched an intro video of the South Pole and see where they live, how daddy took care of them from a little egg and mummy busy getting food. We also watched a video of cute and funny things they did that were caught on camera. We paid attention to their shapes, the way the walk or slide on their tummy or jump in and out of water.
Then we attempted to catch them by the one line drawing done by Picasso and made many penguin stories of our own. We learnt the two Chinese characters ice (冰) and white (白), of which we noticed how the character “water” looks just like the 6 side snow flake water crystal we draw yesterday! Amazing!
We finished with a little song and a little video of how daddy penguin raised the babies.
