Hatch a Bird
Submitted by Karen

Penguins live in Antarctica
Penguins don't live in the north pole, only in the south pole. Talk to children about the differences between the north and south poles and what animals live there, and where they are located. Use a globe to illustrate the difference. Talk about the places where penguins can be found. This makes a great geography lesson.
