It’s not even 7 o’clock on Friday night and I’m ready for bed. Wow, I’m so cool. Actually, I’m enjoying this much needed night of doing nothing (sorry friends, that I bailed on you). I’ve spent the last little while working on this project for the class that I’m taking. We have to make a tunnel book with the main subject being a bird of our choice. From the book, people need to be able to identify 10 facts about the bird. The bird I chose is a penguin….for several reasons. I love black and I think the Arctic is really cool and pretty. Penguins are pretty amazing creatures. Did you know that they drink salt water? Their bodies have a way of separating the salt out and storing it in a special gland. When that gland is full, they bang their beak against a rock to empty it. Weird, but cool! I don’t have any glue at my house right now. So, what you see right now is just the beginning stage of my tunnel book……and just a small section of it. The penguin is not finished, but I like him so far. He’s going to have a little penguin chick with him when I’m done.
