Have you ever wondered how a paper penguin is made?
The purpose of my procedure is to give instructions on how to make a paper penguin.
These are the materials that I used:
a piece of paper about 15 centimetres square.
(black on one side and whites on the other side)
These are steps that I used to make my paper penguin.
1. Fold the paper in the middle.
2. Fold the top corner down 2 centimetres.
3. Fold the bottom corner up 4 centimetres.
4. Fold the paper in half again.
5. Fold corner a back to form a line. Turn the paper over and do the same on the other side.
6. Pull the top corner forward to form the penguin’s beak and squash its head flat.

The duck was delighted that Peter had not closed the gate for he wanted to have a swim in the pond in the meadow. Then Peter’s Grandpa came to the gate. He was disappointed that Peter had come out of the gate. The bird said: ‘‘How can a bird not fly”? Then the duck replied: ‘‘How can a duck not fly”? While the bird and duck were arguing a wolf came out of the forest. The bird flew up to a branch of the tree and the duck climbed as fast as she could. The duck got out of the pond and ran as fast as lightning. The wolf got closer and closer until he caught the duck and ate her with one gulp.
All the animals were sad. Peter had seen everything that had been going on. Peter had found a heavy rope. He asked the bird to go around the wolf’s nose. The bird was twisting round and round while Peter put the rope around the wolf’s tail. Then some hunters came out of the woods. The hunters were going to shout but Peter said, “Stop! The bird and I already caught the wolf.”
They took the wolf to the zoo. Peter’s Grandpa was pleased with Peter and they lived happily ever after and if you listen quietly you can hear a quack in the wolf’s stomach for the wolf had swollen the duck alive.

One day there was a boy named Peter who lived in the woods with his grandpa. Early one morning Peter opened the gate and went out. Then he saw a bird flying around the tree.
After that he saw a duck following him and the gate was opened because Peter forgot to lock it.
He heard the bird asking the duck :“What kind of bird you are if you can’t fly?” and the duck asked: “What kind of bird are you if you can’t swim?”
Then a cat came and he thought that it was a bad cat. He jumped higher and he missed.
A big wolf came from the woods.Then Peter’s grandpa told Peter to come into the house.
The wolf ate the duck and the cat ran away from the wolf. Then Peter climbed on the tree.He caught the wolf right on his tail and two hunters came to the woods. They shot the wolf and Peter saw them and he shouted :”Don't shoot the wolf. I already got it.” Then the hunters got the wolf in the zoo but the duck was still alive in the wolf’s stomach.
He got a rope out of the bag and made a knot. Peter caught the wolf with the rope.
Next the hunters came and they saw the wolf. They took the wolf to the zoo.

Early one morning Peter walked into the meadow. He saw his friend Bird. Duck was happy because Peter left the gate open.
Grandpa was disappointed that Peter went into the meadow. Bird and Cat were fighting. Cat thought it was a good time to get Bird. Instead he chased Duck.
