Penguin Math-Literature Connection

The family in this book receives a penguin in the mail each day and these penguins quickly add up to take over the house and their lives. The book already contains measurement calculations, but the book also lends itself to some problem solving possibilities. After enjoying the book, continue with some of these problem solving activities, created by Mathwire:
  • Students need to apply calendar skills to solve the Penguin Delivery problem.
  • Dad dreams up another crazy arrangement for the penguins in Penguin Formation .
  • See more penguin problems including Penguin Parade and Penguin Puzzler which also feature patterns that would have intrigued Dad.
