Penguins, Penguins, Everywhere… Goodness Advanced Through Our Fruitful Event!


The penguins are coming, the penguins are going!  The Saints in the Goodness Fruit Stand learned so much through our research on penguins.  Did you know that there are 17 different species of penguins?  We shared our research with parents, grandparents, and friends during our Fruitful Event, titled “Goodness Advances”.  Completing our penguin research and designing and building our penguin projects helped us gain knowledge, apply knowledge, and learn how to problem- solve.  Take a look at some of our work!

We read the novel, Mr. Popper’s Penguins.  We saw “Goodness Advancing” in so many ways, and we were able to look at themes throughout the book and see what the Bible says about certain issues from the book.  We designed an igloo with summaries from all our chapters.  We compared and contrasted the economics discussed throughout Mr. Popper’s Penguins with the economics of Israel during the time when Jesus was a child and with Colonial Economics from our study of Colonial Williamsburg.  Take a look at some of the pictures from our Fruitful Event preparation.

Here are some pictures from our awesome field trip to Colonial Williamsburg!  We were able to see first- hand how the citizens of Colonial Virginia preserved food, used oils, sent out news, printed newspapers, traveled, and governed.  We compared many of these things to the way things were done during the time when Jesus was a child.
