January 12, 2015: Penguin Watch–Documenting the World’s Penguin Population

Identifying Penguins

Today the Kindergarteners applied their skills of counting by 5s and tallying, to help scientists document the world’s current penguin population. First, the fifth graders assisted their K-buddies with how to navigate the site PenguinWatch.org. Once the Ks were comfortable using the computer track pads, they were off, counting and recording penguins in photographs taken in real time. The Ks will continue to contribute data to this project throughout the month. Go, Ks!
