Mr. Popper's Penguins Writing Prompt

  • Grades: 3–5, 6–8

WRITING: Testimonial

Remind students that one way the Poppers paid for the penguins' upkeep was to make testimonials, a kind of ad, in which the penguins were shown using a canned shrimp product. Discuss with students how testimonials entice people to try a product. Then have students try writing a testimonial for another product that the penguins might help sell.
