FJC Students Recycle Bottles to Adopt a Penguin!

FJC Students Recycle Bottles to Adopt a Penguin thumbnail165341
To culminate their classroom lessons on penguins, first-grade students in Jennifer Meschi’s class at FJC performed a reader’s theater based on the Tacky the Penguin book series. Family members were invited into the classroom where the students shared their pet penguin stories and the research they conducted and organized on the aquatic birds, discussed the nonfiction penguin books they wrote and ended the project with a special penguin art project. To add to the festivities, the students collected 832 bottles for recycling and will dedicate the funds to “adopting” an endangered African penguin from the Georgia Aquarium.
