Would you like to incorporate more real data into your class? Are your students fascinated by penguins? Consider participating in the 2010-2011 Adelie Penguin breeding season program, as described below by coordinator Jean Pennycook!


Dear Educators,

Welcome to the 2010-2011 Adelie Penguin breeding season. Follow along as Adelie Penguin families raise their chicks ( in the harshest environment on Earth.

Students keep a field journal based on daily photos from Antarctica during the breeding season starting Nov 7 – Jan 28. Other activities for your classroom include: receive a postcard from Antarctica (, design a flag to fly over the colony (, ask a researcher a question, discover how penguins are coping with global climate change, gallery of adaptation photos, field notes, and many other classroom ready activities. Have your class watch for the first penguins of the season to arrive at Cape Royds, and let us know when you see them. Our Penguin cam takes a picture of the colony at Cape Royds every day. Go to our home page: and click on the webcam.

    This will allow you to answer only those calls that come in on your forwarded toll free number and route other calls to
    different locations. Reputation Defense Online an around the world Cyber Investigation along with
    Litigation Assistance Agency for Net Defamation, often receives inquiries from attorneys along
    with law enforcement agencies on the way to subpoena Google’s
    Legal Division.

  3. Hi there excellent website! Does running a blog such
    as this require a large amount of work? I’ve no expertise in programming however I was hoping to start my own blog soon.
    Anyways, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new
