We studied some facts about Emperor penguins who are super awesome! We created postcards with drawings of Emperor penguins and wrote facts on the back. I will send the postcards in an envelope to a U.S. Research Center in Antarctica. A researcher named Jean Pennycook who studies the Emperor penguin colony and leopard seals will return the self-addressed postcards back to us at the school. This will be REALLY cool because they will come back with the Antarctica postmark. The postcards will be displayed on the Showcase tab before they go and after they come back. Students have a special page in their Science Journal where they will keep the postcard.
If you would like to send a postcard from home, please follow the instructions below. No commercial postcards will be accepted. All postcards must be postmarked before December 31, 2014. Postcards should be self-addressed with a stamp. Send the postcard in an envelope and Jean Pennycook will return it with the Antarctica postmark.
