Antarctica’s changing climate is making life more fragile for one of the continent’s most important inhabitants, penguins. Find out what’s happening in the Southern Hemisphere and exhibit your findings.
As the ice of Antarctica melts, there are fewer places for penguins to set up rookeries to raise their young. With more open water, penguins have fewer places to hide from predators such as the leopard seal. Even the krill that penguins eat is disturbed because of global warming. Can you imagine the impact of these changes on the penguin population? Pull facts together from your research to show how the environment is changing for penguins on the most isolated continent on Earth.
From Crayola Black Color Explosion™ paper, cut an Emperor Penguin using Crayola Scissors. Cut a tab between the penguin’s feet to attach it to your triarama. Detail the penguin’s colorful features using the Black Color Explosion Marker. Cut out the penguin’s belly so the white background of the triarama shows through and gives the penguin its characteristic white front.
To add more realism, cut out the head of a hungry leopard seal from Black Color Explosion™ Paper. Leave a tab at the bottom. Draw features including eyes, teeth, and whiskers for this predator using the fine line marker.
Crumple a small White Color Explosion Paper rectangle to form an ice floe for the penguin to stand on. Cut a hole in top of the ice. Insert the penguin’s tab. Secure tab with glue. Air-dry.
To make the triarama for your exhibit, fold over a corner of a sheet of White Color Explosion Paper to create a square. Cut off excess strip. Lightly fold the square into half both ways to create four triangles. Unfold and cut along one fold into the cent
Scrunch up more rectangles of White Color Explosion™ to form larger ice shelves. Run the White Color Explosion Marker over the folds to look like cracks in the ice. Attach the ice to the sides of the triarama with glue dots for a realistic 3-D effect. Glu
