Penguin/Seal Sliding Game
added 11-26-01 Submitted
By: Laurie Nelson
I found pictures of a penguin and a seal sliding down a hill in a children's
picture book. The penguin is sitting on his bottom, and the seal is laying
on his tummy. I copied them and made them into cards. I took our large
foam triangular shaped wedge and covered it with white paper, and then with
smooth plastic (the kind you buy to put on the floor when you're painting).
The kids choose one of the cards and tell me "I want to sit and slide
like the penguin" or "I want to slide on my tummy like the
seal". They then sit on a piece of cardboard made into a sled or
just on the plastic and slide down.
Penguin Shuffle added
Males protect the eggs by balancing them on their feet. So I place a
bean bag on the child's feet and they shuffle from one place to another
without losing the bean bag "egg".
