Watch This Wednesday: Big Brain Report

In our Elementary School kids are assigned their first research project in First Grade........They call this project a student's Big Brain Report. 
After a recent trip to our local Aquarium (yes there is one in our desert state of Utah), where my girls had fun watching the Penguins my first grader did her report on PENGUINS. 
We had a great time using Animal Kingdom & Create a Critter to make some fun shapes to put on her poster. 
Google eyes are the best accessory for our little guys.

A picture taken from a kids meal at Carl/'s Jr. fit perfectly in our little Igloo die cut.
A White Gel Pen adds the right amount of detail.

These Penguins were made with Crafty Foam and my daughter had the wonderful idea of adding cardstock hair to make a Macaroni Penguin's hair just right! 
She read 3 books, looked at 2 websites and spent the day with mom putting together her poster with all kinds of Penguin facts.  Her verbal presentation was Awesome and she will forever love Penguins.  Active Education is always the best even if it means that Mom has to do her 1000th research project in her life!!!
Isn't being a MOM so fun.

AWWWW... your daughter (and you of course) did an amazing job on her "Big Brain Report". It is such a priceless time to have "mommy and me" time also! So those "Big Brain Reports" also make it a double duty opportunity!!
Great job!!!

I like the Penguin report presentation. brings back memories of when my daughter was younger and was doing school presentations like this. We did not have the wonderful Cricut back then.
