Arctic Animal Science Journal , Penguin Unit and other Freebies

If you are working on Arctic Animals, this first grade teacher made a very cute science journal which incorporates polar bears, penguins, walruses, the arctic fox and snowy owl: Oceans of First Grade Fun. (The link no longer works.)
She also has a set of penguin "What Comes Between" math cards. The child has to place the number that comes in between 31 __ 33 or 36 __ 38.  What's nice for us is that they are in a penguin theme and are perfect for DD. We'll stick this activity into her penguin lapbook.

Another really cute unit is this Penguin Unit (No longer available) for tots and preschoolers. Although I found it clicking around in 4Shared, I managed to find the original blog posting here and download link from  MooMooTutu's blog (No longer available) and also see that is linked from Frogs Bees Under the Seas. (No longer available) Thank you for sharing such cute work!!

If you're looking for winter-themed activities to download for your tot or preschooler here are some links.I loved the snowman unit shared by Musings of Me. (No longer available) Wow! I'm so thankful for all fabulous work others have shared.

Update! I'm so sorry to say that many of the links and resources that I originally shared in this post are no longer available. 

If you are interested, I created a Winter Packet a year or so ago. You can find out more at this post. ~Liesl,
