In this lesson, from Xpeditions, students learn about emperor penguins' habitat and behaviors through Web sites such as National Geographic's "Creature Feature." Students illustrate a map to show what they have learned, view pictures of icebergs that are affecting penguin colonies, and consider what impacts these icebergs might have on the penguins. Finally, students write paragraphs describing the maps they have illustrated.
