Project Puffin

CLASSROOM GUIDE

 

In PROJECT PUFFIN, by Stephen W. Kress, readers discover why puffins, with their large, colorful beaks, their upright posture, and their big, dark eyes, are popular all over the world. But for the past hundred years, puffins along the coast of Maine have been threatened with local extinction. Biologist Stephen Kress decided to try to bring puffins back to Maine with an experiment that had never been attempted before. Stunning color photographs on every page capture each step of this wildlife success story. As you learn about The Puffin Project, you’ll also learn all about puffins how they are so wonderfully adapted to their ocean environment, how they catch fish, socialize, nest in burrows, and raise their young.
