Activities for Mr.
Activity #1 [Music]
Mr. Popper had the idea of training the penguins
to perform for an audience to earn money. They moved the piano down
to the cellar. Mrs. Popper played three different pieces of music.
The penguins were trained to perform a certain act when each piece of
music was played on the piano.
