Penguin Science in the class room

It is worth having a look at this site. The research focus is Adelie penguins on Ross Island in Antarctica and change.

I've borrowed the image so you can find the page for classroom activities however there is much more of interest on this site.

Be sure to have a look at the short preview to introduce the DVD. It is free plus postage/handling.

The images are really wonderful. As the scientists begin talking about climate change a big chunk of the ice shelf behind them breaks off with penguins scattering before the surge.

You are watching the earth change right in front of you. Be sure to have a look at the seasonal timelapse on the home page -- it really does look like the earth is breathing!
